Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Endurance.

Long-distance kayaking is all about endurance. We can paddle past sunset

Past sunset

into the night

Into the night

and when the next day dawns


we are still there, paddling.

Still paddling

We can paddle forever.

But we can’t stay awake forever. Sooner or later, that nap on the beach becomes impossible to resist…

  1. I love the first picture with the kayak, the silhouetted rower (paddler?) and the sun looking as though it is balancing on the horizon.


  2. Amazing shots, especially those colours of the sunset and the dawn!


  3. Sort of funny that these are images are from a “challenge” since they feel so calm and serene and peaceful. They are beautiful images, in any case.

  13. Lovely photos, Vlad. It’s important to pace yourself when going a long-distance sport of any kind so you can make it ’til the end.. Having a snooze on the beach? That’s one big bed right there :)
