Now in the past I’ve had no qualms about calling out a dubious cover (or five or six) from Kayak Session. I don’t get what’s with the love of terrible back lighting, but they do just love it. In this circumstance however, I’m giving the cover a big thumbs up. It’s a great shot, and quite unique. I’d like to see the paddlers face not in the shade, but that’s a minor quibble. (that could be made less drastic via photoshop, but that is another story) I make these calls without knowing who the photographer or paddler is, just in case someone was worried about any bias.
Kayak Session #35
I guess it’s a good thing experienced kicked in while I was in the store. A rather incomplete list for the Middle Kings 2010.

Besides the great slides, waterfalls and boulder gardens, the mutli day trip really shines as a highlight of California.

One last day with the D700 before sending it off to see if they can actually address the AF issue this time.

I don’t even know what river this is, I just found the edited image a second ago. Ben Stookesberry…some fork of the San Joaquin?? I think it’s the Middle Fork in a gorge below the crucible.
