Monday - Symposium End

It ended, not with a whimper, but with a bang!

The coastguard came to demonstrate flare firing. I was poised with my wide angle lens, close to someone who was about to fire a white parachute. Watching from the upstairs window, Gordon Brown had assembled a second crowd, partly to watch the flare, mainly to watch me. "See how high he jumps when that flare goes off", he told the assembled group.

About four feet.

What the didn't see was me switching to a 200mm telephoto for the rest of the flare firing.

Here are a few photos.

So that's it. Full reports in all good magazines soon, and on 1st June a Podcast with Aled about the new In-Uit boat and the views of a 5* paddler who took it out.
