Book or Ark?

As you may already know, I'm working on a kayaking book at the moment. The details must, for now, remain shrouded in mystery, but it's not revealing any secrets to say that it'll have a lot of photos in it!

In theory, I'm on the home straight with this project now,  but the English weather is conspiring to make my photos brown and miserable. It's been raining and windy for so long now that I started to wonder if I should abandon the book and start building an ark instead. But perserverance is the only way, so we press on regardless. I take my hat off to my friend Pete Thompson for donning a T-shirt and trying to make a sea kayak skills shoot look as if the weather is, if not actually tropical, at least borderline tolerable.
