"Paddling In The Lull Of A Storm, Part2"

video
If you pay closer attention at times 3:35 and 4:11 you will see the waves start to hide the horizon, and then crash on shore, respectively. Too bad pictures mask some of the actual sea state and I suspect they do to a degree save that you just have to have the right angles to get quality shots. I most certainly did not, especially since the drops were starting to mask and coat the lens as was obvious by the water blobs and streaks in the video. Kind of fun to try and capture something though.

Stan, I think the clip does a pretty good job of showing the sea state then. Especially when I disappear behind waves and at 3:35 when that huge wave went under you.

Awesome that you guys are paddling in those conditions, I'm too big of a wuss for that :-)

Naw probably not Brian you just haven't worked up to it yet. Believe me when I first sat in a kayak I thought I was in the wrong boat or something.....it was tippy. lol They're still tippy, just manage that differently!

Seriously tho, you guys are really pushing the envelope, and its awesome to see, keep posting these videos and pics.
In the meantime, I'll keep practicing.

A good point wonderfully illustrated. With a still camera, of course, one has to add in the frustration of shutter lag...that hour and a half (so it seems) between the pressing of the button and the click of the shutter.
