Kayaks for sale


We found these kayaks for sale at Dick's Sporting Goods. I played around with the photo a bit in Photoshop.

$249 for a cayak, is that a good price? Maybe it comes with a person doing the paddling as well. A lovely way to float through life anyhow, as long as one knows how to make friends with the insects.

This definitely wouldn't work in black and white!
Great idea, fine shot and effective 'tweaking'.

Great impact! I love the shot, Jacob.
We also have a lots of place for kayak-ing in Nelson.

Terrific!
Can feel the speed, Jacob.

Vivid colors! Very nice photo.

Nice rainbow of color. I wonder why they make kayaks so bright. I suppose if someone tipped, it would be easy to spot. So, did you buy one? You'll get a new perspective from the water. Oh ya, don't forget to pick up the disposable digital camera while you're at it.

Tricia said...

So colorful, but I think I'll leave the kayaking to the kayakers! hehehe

I am trying to imagine the photographer paddling along his wife who is running on the bank. Forget about me, I didn't sleep. The colours work wonders here, that has already been said!

P.S.: forgive my impertinence.

Jackie said...

I like the angle on this - a very striking image!

Jacob said...

@ CQ - You're not impertinent! You're really funny - that is an interesting scenario...and I wouldn't be able to paddle fast enough to keep up with her!

I didn't sleep, either! Must be something going around.

Wanted to tell you for some time, though, that you look very much like my sister did when she was younger...in fact, you could be her twin! Amazing!

Jarart said...

Wow! Those colors really pop!

Cezar and Léia said...

I would like the red colour for me! Maybe I couldn't afford it.
:-) maybe without colour could fit in my wallet!

Jacob said...

@ Leia - Two too many "maybes." I have found that I can often afford things that I really want. Maybe you're just not the kayaking type?

What is the kayaking type? I wish somebody could tell me. Canoe?

Small City Scenes said...

Super shot. My friend was down in you area and did in fact go kayaking. His Kayak even has a rudder. Oh my

Halcyon said...

I love the colors!

I tried to post here while I was at work, but it kept getting eaten. :( I think my work doesn't like your blog b/c I can post on others. :( :( :(

Jacob said...

@ Halcyon - I'm glad you kept trying...computers are crazy. I have that problem sometimes and then it resolves.

You could have some block on your work computer...I talked with one woman the other day who couldn't access anything on the Internet other than what her company allowed...

Lessie said...

Love the colors. I didn't know I "needed" a kayak until this summer. Some people are gonna have fun with those!

Bath Daily Photo Blog said...

well this certainly floats my boat...

Lisa Wilson said...

Nice colors! It's almost kayak season here, though it may be short this spring/summer due to how fast the snow is melting from the layer of dust and dirt heating up the snowpack.

Fantastic collection of Kayaks, these are sports kayak which are made curbed in shape.
