- Description: During my first trip to Colorado, my friends and I stopped at the Durango Tourist Center for photo ops and info. Behind the center is a stream used for kayak races.
While setting up for a shot, three kayakers paddled their way down a water-rushed area. During their first run, one of them wiped out, went to shore, and a short time later paddled downstream while his friends waited for him to catch up to them. All three then went down the rapids again safely. This shot was taken of one of them during the second run. This was also my first time capturing extreme sport shots of any kind.
