Night Paddling

Last night Will Coolidge and I went out for a short night paddle. He attached a small beacon to his Pamlico 14 and I attached my newest toy to my Carolina 14. I also had a headlamp strapped to my hat. We only spent an hour max, possibly less, on the water. But it was quite enjoyable. I need to work on adjusting my camera's settings to find a better setup for night pictures, but I did have some turnout alright.

  1. Pat, this night paddling must be catching. Did you check out Jarett's photos of night paddling on Lake Benton? I enjoyed your photos; they offered a new perspective for me on kayaking. Nice work!
