Rafting the Mighty Middle Fork of the Salmon

By choosing the freedom of an inflatable kayak instead of one of the rafts, I was free  to paddle ahead or fall behind the group to capture scene-setting shots from high above the Middle Fork canyon.  

This is another self-portrait for my foot files. Feet are an accessible tool to create perspective. It's a quirky yet personal way to bridge the gap between the viewer and photographer—it really puts you in the experience.
