dragon boat racers: toronto international dragon boat race 5
Loading real life preview
I have never paddled a dragon boat but I find myself coming back repeatedly to photograph them. I think it is the rhythm, power and grace emerging from the chaos of a race. For this image I chose a long exposure; 1/3rd of a second. The result faithfully captures the intensity of a race at the Toronto International Dragon Boat Festival.
