Taken early November at the Rowardennan meet. This was where my 300D came a cropper - so thanks again to Adrian Carr for allowing me to borrow his D70.

Not bad Colin, not bad!
Worth the wait in the cold and rain I would say.

Wow! Thanks for the clicks and comments everyone. This has been a surprise.
Yes, John, this is the triple fall at Glen Etive. These guys were rookies from Edinburgh University Canoe Club and this was their first drop.
Again, all, thanks for the support.

An excellent 'action' capture, great drama in the water and anticipation in the man's face. Seems you took to the Nikon quite well!

Great shot Colin. I think the way the "double" falls at the back lead your eye towards the canoeist and the stark orange colour all add up to a great image. John
