Hawaiian Canoe Racing season

   From time to time I’ll be on Kamehame Ridge helping my Hang Gliding friends launch themselves into the sky.   Eleven hundred feet below me the faint sounds of outrigger canoe paddlers grunting out their cadence reach me as the paddlers and support boats move across Waimanalo Bay.  It’s one of the long distant races to challenge the stamina of both Men and Women. If you want to watch the 2010 races , this link will connect you to the schedule OHCRA 2010 Regatta Details.   Here’s a photo from my vantage point on the ridge of the 42nd Annual Duke Kahanamoku Race last August.  I have two things working against me in taking these shots.  First I’m hand holding my zoom lens (the sensor stabilization in the A700 only goes so far) second the lens is for a full frame camera on an APS-C size sensor and some of my shots get soft and diffracted.
