You Do What You Can
The two elements necessary to a good rowing picture, in my opinion, are 1) good technical rowing, and 2) good location. I shot this today down near Bellows Fall, VT of a group doing a 4-day tour of the CT River and it had maybe half of that equation. Shooting on that section of the CT is a bitch, the shores are either very steep or very wooded, or both. Unlike the area up here, there aren’t many roads that run right along the river and no fields that drop right down to river’s edge. So you just do what you can, bridges are reliable places to shoot. Oh, as long as I’m complaining, the river water is really brown because of the heavy rains yesterday. Enough moaning?
Riding has been great, so that’s good news. And it’s the weekend, too. More good news. I’m hooking up with the 7 AM (!) mtn bike ride Saturday morning up in Lyme. Not such good news, or maybe it is. Nothing like getting your out-of-shape legs thrashed by some local old guys.
