I have taken many shots of people rowing from this spot near the Bow bridge before. But they were all from a higher perspective off near the side of the road. What I really wanted was a shot from a more water level perspective. So I walked down the from the road and gingerly crept to the waters edge balancing myself on some rocks, careful not to fall in to the lake and send my equipment to a watery grave.
Looking around in both directions for something interesting to shoot, I was there for probably less than 30 seconds before I saw just the kind interesting shot I was hoping for, come floating by. It happened so fast I scarcely had enough time to steady myself on the rocks and compose the shot. Boy was I glad I tried somewhere new to stand.
