Stunning shot. I love the simplicity of the shot, but yet it has so much emotion behind it. The steam adds a very nice element to this photograph. Nice work!

you know, when i saw this in voting for the kayak comp, i thought this might be the winner.. Shame.. I think this is an awesome shot..

Love the shadows and mist of it.. Also wish i was that trusting to take my lens out on the water... paranoid enough when its in a water bag or peli case :)
Great !!!!!!!!!!!

Behind The Lens

This image was taken from a kayak on Wilson Lake in Quebec
I had gotten on the lake by 5:00 am and this was taken shortly after getting on the water. We were out to shoot loons but the fog was so thick before sunrise and could still be seen rolling down the hills until about noon.
This was taken just as the sun was coming up providing for strong backlighting of the other photographer in a kayak as well as the fog
This was taken hand held with a Nikon D3s camera and a Nikon 200-400 mm lens.
While looking for loons in the early morning fog, I soon realized finding any loons would be difficult with the thick fog limiting visibility. The only subject of note was my friend and fellow photographer in his kayak; particularly when the sun came up providing the backlighting.
I shoot in RAW and do basis processing which typically includes, noise reduction, sharpening, exposure, colour balance (converted to black and white in this case). I also crop to taste.
In my camera bag
I like options and carry lots of gear on any given day. I generally have a full frame camera and a crop sensor camera as well as lenses providing focal length options ranging from 14 mm to 600 mm as well as teleconverters (1.4; 1.7; 2.00). All cameras and lenses are Nikon. I generally use a 3 or 5 series Gitzo tripod with Jobu or Wimberley Gimbal head.
This type of shot requires heavy fog which means shooting in early morning light. Having an interesting subject to silhouette also helps.
