Whitewater - the River Dart - Friday 18th November

This was the first of two days photographing the Loop section of the River Dart, in Dartmoor. 

The water level was low, so it was an easy paddle, scrappy in places, grade two with a small number of grade three features. For non-paddlers, this means mostly small waves and obstacles such as rocks, which are reasonably easy to avoid, with the occasional larger rapid, for which more attention is needed.  The autumnal river banks were stunning with the trees and ground covered in warm coloured leaves.  We were a group of 11 paddlers, friends from two canoe clubs, Putney Bridge Canoe Club and Cherwell Canoe Club.  Most of the photography was done from a kayak, although I did get out a couple of times to get a higher viewpoint. My aim was to show non-paddlers why white water paddling is such a wonderful experience.
