Photo of the Month - November 2001
A good action photo is always welcome when it comes to illustrating what
Scouts get out and do. Richard Blades of the 16th Harrogate Scout Group,
Harrogate & Nidderdale District, North Yorkshire took this photo on 6th
October 2001 at a Whitewater Day. Martin Blades is the subject of the photo
but Richard does not say if they are related.
On a white water introduction day in October organised by North Yorkshire
Scouts Water Sports Section at Sleningford on the river Ure the water was a
bit too white for most paddlers but not Martin. Did Martin have a boat
under him or was he just sat on a rock?

If you look closely you can see Martin's canoe and you can also see the
effect on bouyancy of turbulent water like this. You can find out more
