When I came across these kayakers on Clark Fork River right in downtown Missoula, MT, I had to stop and shoot some photos. It’s one of those sports activities that a photographer generally doesn’t come across too often.
It was one of those bright sunny days when it’s difficult to capture the full range of lights, darks and midtones in a photo. The white water can easily get “blown out” or totally white with no visible detail. I was able to prevent “blown out” areas for the most part.
