- Title: Kayaker's Dream
- State/Province/Region: Alaska
- Country: United States
- Nearest Town: Juneau
- Description: Mendenhall Glacier
1/1250th sec. @f5.6, ISO 400, 225mm (337mm equiv).
Shot immediately after emerging from the heavy cover of the coastal temperate rain forest we were hiking through. The view that greeted us as we emerged was breathtaking, there was a lake filled with icebergs, surrounded by mountains, fed by Mendenhall glacier with a waterfall off to the side to top it all off. Needless to say I was in awe. After my initial quick scan of the landscape I noticed two kayakers paddling past an iceberg heading toward the face of the glacier. I had little time for adjustments and framing so I fired off a few quick shots. By the second shot the kayakers were already partially covered by the brush in the foreground. It’s a little soft due to camera shake but I’m glad I was able to capture the moment.
- Gear: Nikon D300s w/ 70-200mm + 1.4x ext.
