Algonquin Park canoe trip video

I'm always impressed when people make the effort to do a good job recording their adventures on camera. As a "point and shoot" type photographer, I am well aware of how easy it is to take a mediocre picture, how hard it is to take a good picture and how rare it is to take a great picture.

Taking video adds an extra dimension and quite honestly, canoe tripping doesn't lend itself that well to the "action sports" genre so popular with videographers. When a couple of creative and talented people go on a canoe trip, the results can be impressive. Team Pickle's video below is such an example.

Here is the description from the Maia Media website, where the video is posted:

Back from our 17 day Canadian Adventure paddling & camping in Algonquin Park. It was most definately more of an endurance test than either of us had expected but very rewarding. In brief we saw 4 moose, got bitten by enormous mosquitos, ate too much sausage, completed 27 portages, stayed 3 nights in “a scary death cabin”, saw bear and wolf prints, caught fish and toasted 3 bags of marshmellows!

All footage has been taken using a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3. The footage is a combination of photographs and video footage.
