When Betsy and I got to the New River at the bottom of the gorge (click here to read about our trip down), we parked the car to walk over the bridge. We wanted to get some pictures of the beautiful gorge, but when we got onto the bride Betsy noticed two kayakers, as seen in the picture above, getting ready to shoot the Fayette Station Rapids.
The rapids were some distance downstream from the bridge, and the kayakers were moving too quickly for me to get back to the car to retrieve my telephoto lens. So I did the best I could with my standard lens. The kayakers are approaching the rapids in the picture above.
If you look carefully in the middle of this picture you can see two helmets and two paddles as the kayakers shoot the rapids.
I cropped and enlarged the previous picture to give a slightly better picture of the kayakers in the rapids. It’s a good thing it was a warm day.
