It’s always fun to set the shutter really fast to freeze water or to slow the shutter down to give it the nice fluid motion feel.
Here I decided to slow it down quite a bit to try and show the power of the flowing water while the kayaker surfed the swell on this river rapid. I’m pleased with the calm and contrasting energy that this captured.
But to say that the race is the metaphor for the life is to miss the point. The race is everything. It obliterates whatever isn’t racing. Life is the metaphor for the race.

I wanted to share this photograph, not because it’s a good photo (in fact there are a handful of things I could have done to improve it) but because it reminds me of a time and place where I captured it. It reminds me of being in the cramped back of a hotel in Jackson Hole while hanging with an amazing North Face photographer, Lucas Gilman, an inspirational photo editor for the National Geographic, Sadie Quarrier and a bunch of rad photographers that became friends. We were all going on way too little sleep, working our butts off and loving every minute of it.
