Go through your list of kayaking friends and many of them will tell you about their passion for the sport and it's action. Many are photograpers as well as paddlers. Most will be happy to get out their photos for you to see what they're talking about. So it should be! Kayaking is a sport with plenty of action with many passionate paddlers who are enthusiatic photographers.
Passion and action can be had in other genres as well. The photo above of my favourite flamenco guitarist, Moraito Chico, is one of a series of 42 photos taken during 2007 and posted in a slideshow on the Flamenco World site. It's a place I often go to to worship. If you are a photographer seeking to put some action and passion into your paddling pictures, check out this slideshow. I'll refund your money if you don't agree they're incredible!
