Rafting

Running Lave Falls, Grand Canyon‚ May, 2000

Somewhere inside this maelstrom is a S-rig raft containing 14 people and a crew of 2.

Lava Fallsat Mile 179 is the most treacherous rapid on the river. No matter how sanguine one becomes about shooting rapids, Lava Falls is one to be reckoned with.

After our boat ran the rapids first we stood on the shore and photographed our companion boat. Taken at a focal length of about 300mm. Exposure was 1/360 sec @ f/6.3

Photographed with a Canon EOS-1V and 100~400mm f/5.6L IS lens on Fuji Provia 100F
