For most of the fifteen hours out on the Ring, the snaps I took I caught with my mobile phone. It has the decided advantage of being waterproof, and so stayed tethered to me and therefore available throughout the day.

I did take my Pentax, and nearly drowned it during our unintended encounter with the bank just below the Lower Parting, as the camera bag was lashed down to the aft deck and got a good dunking. The camera bag is a good one though, and the camera survived.

But remained in the bag for the remainder of the day.

The following shots were taken with the Pentax just after we'd launched from Lydney, and give a fair idea of the mood the river was in.

It was a glorious day.
