Canoeing for Color

Almost perfect water for reflections and paddling. I like the early colors here and how they flank the bow of your canoe.

I have always been fond of the woodwork in the bow of the Bell Magic canoes.

Super cool Bart! I like the tip of the canoe in the photo, it really adds to this in helping put the the viewer into the photo.

It feels like I was there. But mine was a Coleman. I love the way the two trees and there reflection encase the canoe nose. Very well composed.

Thanks all. It was a great morning; misty at first, but it burned off fast, and the colors were quite good. Ben, Al: I also have a nice cedar strip canoe, 2 seater, that's wide and great for packing a lot of gear. I could easily stand up with a tripod in it. But it needs a refinishing -- next year.... In the Bell, it's so narrow it's a challenge to keep still, even with a tripod in it. For some shots, I had to "park" in the reeds, which kicked up some bugs. That's a photographer's life. But you've gotta love every second of it.

Wonderful season there for you, Bart. I like how the canoe tip is showing yet the water surface is glassy and perfectly reflective.

I am well acquainted with trying to stabilize just about anything with the Bell Magic. I never tried using a tripod in mine - just handheld shots. I have to admit I am chuckling over the mental image of even trying :D
