I had the pleasure of watching some of the best kayak marathon racers in the UK last weekend.

The weather was terrible 40+mph gusts, but the athletes took it in there stride and went on the water to win. The skill, power, speed and balance was amazing. Below are a few snaps from last weekend and earlier races in the season.

comments and feedback welcome.

Liking those very much. All look good to me. Like number 1 very much for it's frame filling content the water splashes shout out action to the veiwer.
Number 3 is fab too. I had no idea they sit in alomost nothing which the head on shot shows really well.

Thanks guys for comments.

They really are super skinny wobbly kayaks. I have been learning to paddle over the last few months and the balance, control and skill required is something else and I'm in a much more stable kayak. Hats off to these racing athletes, some races are 21k or more.

I like these too. 1 is my favourite, like the separation of the main subject from the others in the background. All are taken from a good POV and impressively sharp too.
