Three More Paddling Photo Winners

By Vladimir Brezina

The popular paddling site runs a Photo of the Week contest. Over the past couple of years, I’ve submitted a few of my photos. The first three photos that were successful were here. Now here are three more winners.


Sailing my kayak with Balogh Batwing sail and BOSS outriggers on Long Island Sound. Sail is double-reefed in a 25-kt wind. Photo was taken by camera mounted at the top of the mast.

  3. Loved all three shots, but liked the second frame the best. Congrats on the “outside” recognition.

  4. Great shots. I can see why they won. Love the first one in particular.

  5. Congratulations! They are all excellent shots, my favorite is the first.

  6. Congratulations. Fabulous photos and very worthy winners! I’d never seen a sail attached to a kayak before, brilliant. :-)

  7. the top picture is brilliant – must enable some speed and stability

  8. ah, they are all lovely, but that final one…. who could ask for more than such a perfect ending to an amazing day?!!!

  9. Brilliant all three! Congratulations Vlad!
    And a very Happy New Year to Johna and you :-)

  10. Congratulations :) fantastic shots :) the last with sunset is simply beautiful :)

  11. The last picture took my breath away.

  12. Congratulations – well deserved!

  13. Nice – Gets me excited for the season ahead! Congrats on the photo win!

  14. Congratulations, Vlad! Awesome three shots. Happy 2013!

  15. They’re all great, Vlad, but I love the one from the mast – such an unusual POV.

  16. Vlad all your pictures are prize winners. I am always in awe looking at them. Alway look forward to your next posting

  17. I can see why you were chosen. Congrats!

  18. Congratulations! Great collection of photos. Can’t decide if I like the 2nd or 3rd one best.

  19. Congrats on the success of your great photos!

  20. Vladimir, it’s ironic, but they initially got us mixed up. They had the caption for one of my fall photos attached to your stunning sunset picture and attributed it to me. I didn’t know it until now, but when I saw the photo I was sure it was one of yours. I’m not at all disappointed. My fall picture was rather dull and compared to yours. Congratulations.

  21. Congratulations Vladi ! All great photos, the second is my favourite ;-)

  22. Congrats, these are all brilliant!
    All the best for a happy and creative 2013 to you both!

  23. Congratulations! I always enjoy your photos because they’re taken from a kayak, a different perspective for me. BTW, the “Batwing” setup looks so cool! Must be a lot of fun. :)

  24. wow! the first pic is absolutely stunning, and so are the other two. Congrats! you so deserve to win and wish you a very Happy New Year!

  25. Congratulations! A well-deserved honor.
