Perfect weather for paddling.

If you're thinking of coming to Cairns for a holiday better get on a plane quick smart! The weather up here is simply sensational at the moment. Beautifully warm days, cool evenings and the mozzies are all gone. It's perfect weather to get that kayak out and go for a paddle. This image was shot off the coast of Port Douglas, just up the road.

It's a super wide-angle lens with a small aperture for a large depth-of-field, as well as a polariser filter to really make those bright colours pop. The trick is to get all paddlers to come past me in the right place, and have them al paddling together! It's a tough job but somebody's gotta do it. :)
