Winter Kayaker/ Watery Wednesday

 Kayaker entering Whitby Harbour

Not everyone puts their kayak away and hangs up their paddles for the winter months.  This hardy kayaker must believe in the proverb "There is no bad weather, only the wrong gear."

 A closer look

Passing me where I stood on the pier

I am linking to Watery Wednesday where you can find many more watery photos.

He looks so small in all of that water. Scary to me. It sure looks cold!

Wonderful composition in the first photo. Such an intrepid kayaker!

Boy, he is definitely much more hardy than me! The first photo really makes the story of the big, big open water and the little, little frail guy out in it.

Honest Abe said...

Such a small boat.

Hardy he must be, it looks freezing.

Kathy said...

A braver soul than I!

Daniel said...

Great capture!

Reminds me of winter dives... as in scuba dives in icy waters.

Nancy Claeys said...

Amazing shots. Great captures. :)

Judy said...

He sure looks dressed for it. I bet it's peaceful being the only one out there.

Kate said...

He is indeed a brave soul; perhaps a bit foolhardy too. I particularly like the last photo. His choice of color if his apparel is wise since it can be seen from afar in an emergency.

Jenn Jilks said...

THere is a sturdy soul, not to mention you being out there in the cold!
Great photos.
Love the Family Day photos, too!

Cheers from Cottage Country East!

Brrrr . . as much as I enjoy the cooler temperatures, that does look C O L D ! Great captures which demonstrate that those with a passion will let nothing stand in their way! Have a great week.

Great series of shots! Funnily I posted canoeing photos today. Great minds think alike!

George said...

This guy is much more hardy than I am -- and, I'm guessing, much younger!

kaye said...

what a brave soul!

Lowell said...

Fascinating series which proves my theory that some Ontarions are just plain nuts!

hamilton said...

and some Ontarians are just full of adventure. I would not be one of them, though.

Small City Scenes said...

Well he seems bundled up enough.
as long as he takes heed of warnings.
But BRRRR!!!

That takes a very hearty (or fool hearty) soul! I'll go with the former nor the latter... love your shots!

Susan said...

No way you'd get me in that thing. That is really cold water!

Jack said...

This looks like a very cold hobby. I can think of other things that would be more fun, even though I do like kayaking in warm weather.

Randy said...

Love that first shot!

Stephanie said...

Wonderful captures. Thanks for stopping by my blog from time to time.

Gillian Olson said...

Not sure I would want to be out this time of year. In the first couple of shots it is so choppy you can barely see the kayak. BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

Ann said...

very brave man, I am not, I just sit on my couch and comment what a silly man. LOL

Gemma Wiseman said...

This guy seems all rugged up to face the watery chills! Great shots of a special thrill seeker!

llandudnopictures said...

The main thing is he looks like he's enjoying himself!
