Beautiful day for a row… by rhoing

Beautiful day for a row…

I like how the ripples and the trees framed the clouds.

Not posted: GoPro video of the shell's short walk from the top of my car in the parking lot to the water:

Very pretty! I liked the video too. Were you alone?

@alophoto It's one of the things that sets apart this particular fitness pursuit!

@janeandcharlie Thanks for watching the video. The back end of that is hoisting it out of the water and getting it to the cartop again … after having done a tiring workout. Yes, my last several rows have been alone. See @alophoto 's comment above!

I'm trying to work out how you rowed and took a photo at the same time. This looks so peaceful, and a lovely calm spot for a row.

Wow! Love how still the water is. Great shot of the oar (paddle?) in the water.

@888rachel Oh, my, but I don't! Because one can never-ever let go of the oars! Photo procedure:
1. Stop rowing.
2. Tuck the oar handles under my arms; now the hands are free.
3. Grab camera & shoot, while keeping oars tucked under arms.
If one doesn't have the oars secured? It's "swim time"!

@thewatersphotos Not sure of the difference between an "oar" and a "paddle," but these are considered oars. (Both canoeing and kayaking have paddles, so it's not the number of blades. Perhaps "oars" go into oar locks and "paddles" do not? I'll go with that for now!
