Photographing with an unprotected digital SLR while paddling a single sea kayak in frigid waters is a challenge. I aimed to capture an image like this and was pleased to do so after many attempts, even if it caught only the ‘tail end’ of these Gentoo Penguins (Pygoscelis papua) ‘flying’ through the air!
