Kayaking the Wrights Lake inlet



See larger here

Good photo for back-to-work day. Where would you rather be? In a cubicle counting beans for The Man or in the kayak? Duh. 

This is the inlet to Wrights Lake in the northern Sierra. Paddle to the north side of the lake and look for the very narrow channel through the reeds that provides access to the inlet. Paddle under the first bridge, hang a left and keep going -- you can get as far as a second bridge that carries a trail over the channel. 

Thunderstorms were moving in and provided the clouds. Otherwise, a pretty easy image to take. I used my Nikon D5100 and Nikon DX 10-24mm wide angle lens at 10 mm and ISO 100. The photo was shot in RAW and processed in Lightroom. 

Love the above photo? Buy a print! They're priced very modestly and may make a nice gift for the kayaker in your life. Digital licenses are also available.
