Photo of the Day: Kayakers, Overpeck Creek, Bergen County NJ

Overpeck Creek, a few miles from where I live in Bergen County, NJ, has been a favorite site for kayakers and canoeists for quite some time. (In fact, it has hosted Columbia University’s dock and rowing crews, as well as crews for several high schools in the area.)

For the last week or so especially, as the weather has warmed up, I’ve wanted to photograph this activity. But the conditions weren’t right: trees getting in the way, say, or the kayakers moving just beyond the range of my camera.

But today, the conditions were just right. There were several kayakers together (even more than in this picture), they had slowed down, and I was on a bank with nothing blocking the view. I was delighted to have an opportunity for this shot—almost as much as I am for the onset of lovely weather brought on by spring itself.
