Travel Photo: Okukubi River Kayakers and Why I Saved Them

Not the Kayakers -- The Photos !


 This image came from a series of river photos, taken a few years ago.

Thousands of my images are stored on three external hard drives on my desk.

And, many of them never get developed, until, I decide I need a particular image.

kayaks, river, mangrove,birds in flight

If the urge hits, I dig back through old photo files and, develop one for a certain occasion. 

Today, I processed two photos, that have never been seen, anywhere, until today.

One of them, will be published in Stars & Stripes Okinawa newspaper, this week.

This is another version of the image, showing Eco-tourists on the Okukubi River.

The egrets, in flight, just happened to be a bonus, as the image was composed.

The shutter on the camera, clicked a few dozen times.

Camera: Pentax KD10

Lens: Pentax 18-250 at 190MM

Exposure: f/10  1/250   ISO 100

Location: Okukubi River, Kin Town, Okinawa, Japan

Date and Time:  DEC 19 2008  10:02AM

NOTE: Check Stripes Japan or Stripes Okinawa, to see the story online.

Photography and text were mine.  

But, the hard part, translation, of the story was done by Mami Sakiyama.

Do me a favor and, hit some social media buttons, for her.

If, I can get away with it, I'll shoot the front page of the Stripes newspaper, later this week !
