Canyon Lake

Nice little paddle today with the Desert Mountain Paddlers.
Dinked around the coves on the southern edge of the lake. Actually, this was my first time paddle around them, cuz I normally move on to bigger and better things, but this was actually pretty scenic stuff.

Saw a couple bighorn sheep ewes with their lambs a little ways of from the shoreline. Pretty neato.

Here is a video of the day:

Lousy fast camera work. Slow down and let the scenes be seen.

Thanks, Anonymouse! I see what you are saying.

I struggle with keeping the viewers attention (remedy short shots), with letting the audience take in the scenery (longer shots). This video seems pretty rushed in many of the clips, and this probably causes some motion sickness.

Then again, I didn't have a ferocious amount of high quality and stable shots to deal with. I also need to balance who my audience is??? Is it for later viewers or is it for the people who were on this trip. I think I focused on trying to get as many people who were on this little excursion as possible (another excuse for shorter shots). Getting as many people in the video (doing the activity) comes as a price of beauty and tolerable video to watch.

Thanks again for the critique.
