Nice catch, that must be still water - or how do you keep the Kayak still?

This shot was on a reasonably calm day. I always shoot over a 1000th of a second to offset wave motion.
I only go out when the tide, lighting, wind and waves are reasonable. Luckily that combo comes up fairly often. I hang my legs outside the kayak for a little more stability, and if hugging the shore I will occasionally crawl out of the kayak and use it as a blind. Unfortunately the Skimmers are in a protected area and no landings are allowed.

IslanderMV, interesting (and great shots).  I still haven't gotten around to getting a Kayak and always have visons of drowned camera gear.  Do you?

Hey Jack,
In the beginning I had near panic attacks about my equipment, but now that it has been through hell and back, not so much. I dropped the camera and telephoto on a cobblestone beach, had the shutter replaced ( extended warranty !! ) got fine black silt into the 100-400 push pull, and so on. So now if King Neptune claims my equipment, I will have an excuse to get new gear.
