A View from a Kayak Cockpit - 3 Paddlers, 3 Cameras, 3 Boats

A paddlers perspective. Three pictures shot from a kayak cockpit by three paddlers. In each shot the camera was held by a paddler in right hand. Three different kayaks: a ICF K1, a sea kayak and an unlimited racing kayak. Three locations: Sweden, Montana and Colorado. Three DSLR cameras or more importantly three different focal length of lenses: 12, 17 and 20 mm. Time: late fall or winter.

I am still working on my shot with the Thunderbolt kayak. It is the longest boat here at 21', but it was also shot with the longest lens. It is a very similar view angle as provided by my Pentax Optio W10.

Suggestion: rather use your waterproof camera!
