    ...Why Do I Take So Many Flower Photos?
    by Andrea Clark (forum contributor)

    The variety of plant life is infinite, from the waxy blooms of the water OE Digital Photography © Outdoor Eyes lily to the delicacy of the fuchsia, from the first bright green unfurling leaves in spring to the crisp russet curls that result when the summer moisture has gone; there is massive scope to use one's imagination in creating exciting, different images.  Top

    ...The Right Software Can Save Images
    by Brandon Batie

    Be Prepared!

    Every time I take my kayak out to paddle into the open ocean, I always see paddlers that haven't taken OE Digital Photography © Outdoor Eyes the precautions to protect themselves for an unfortunate occurrence. The paddlers don't wear a PFD, don't carry an extra paddle, no VHF radio and the list goes on. I always sit back and never say anything as it is really not my business. It is their life. But last week, as my wife and I paddled out about 2 miles, we came upon a father and son. It was 30 knot winds and the father was in 50 degree water with the hatch blown open, his kayak sinking and hypothermia setting is. The son was losing his father and if we hadn't come along, that would have been the headline story on the news that night. My wife was chasing the PFD that was floating away and I finally couldn't hold back myself. "Guess you never figured out what to do if you fell in the water?" We saved the father with a tremendous amount of effort as an almost completely filled kayak with water and 30 knot winds is a very difficult rescue. Think ahead when you venture out by yourself in the outdoors when you photograph. Have you protected yourself and brought water, cell phone, medical supplies, etc.? Did you tell anyone where you were going for the day? Be prepared.  Top

    The Middle Mekong Dispatch

    I paddled down long sections of swirl rapids until I noticed that what originally appeared to be a stick OE Digital Photography © Outdoor Eyes swaying in the current was actually a king cobra attempting to swim across the Mekong. Not one to miss a photo opportunity I paddled as close as I safely could and began pulling my camera out. I know cobras were good swimmers as I had seen a few cross-creeks in the past but this guy was exceptional. While getting my camera out I took my eye off the eight ball for a couple of moments and before I knew it I was inadvertently sucked into a whirlpool with him.  Top
