Default Head and Tail of the Gorge (crew regatta)

Our little rowing club was in Victoria last weekend for the Head and Tail of the Gorge regatta. Shooting crew regattas is almost all I've been doing lately. If you're interested, the full story is here: Head and Tail of the Gorge - Sumptuous Art

The Head of the Gorge (junior quad)


Shooting the Narrows (master men's quad)


Tile of the Gorge (Master Women's Quad)


Mixed Masters Quad


Normally I use the longest lens I have and still wish for more reach. For this event, though, the vantage points were so close to the action that I only used the 24-70mm. It was cold and wet and unpleasant the entire time, but I can't wait to do it again. It's a fun and challenging sport to shoot.

C & C always welcome and appreciated,

I like these shots and the regattas themselves. A lot of power and speed in these things...

Technique is everything, both in rowing and photography. Everyone, including you, seems to have things under control. Nice series.
