Those things are TINY!

I would have liked to see a little quicker shutter.

Thanks!

Yes, the shutter was a little slow. The problem is the low resolution on the screen on my D5000. It makes almost everything look sharp so it´s hard to tell untill you see the pics on the computer.
But I liked the pics anyway.

Shoturtle: The water is cold;-)

actually the slower shutter speed adds to the sense of action. So depending on how you want to present it, freezing action or giving a sense of motion. It will or will not work depending on the case.

Yeah, the worst feeling in the world is actually being cold and wet. That is something that makes me shiver.

I saw these yesterday and my first thought was COLD! I have seen these little Kayaks around here on the rivers, but normally in the summer (yeah, I know, not much difference) they are great for rough water.

Danne,

Think they're made for (must be?) rapid water with many obstacles, where the usual size would be impossible to manoeuver. Seen them in Säve River. Have some pcitures somewhere

You really have to have articulated arm and breast muscles
