Exploring Britain by SUP 

Here are some preview images from a project I'm currently working on: a story about exploring the rivers, estuaries and coasts of Britain by SUP (stand-up paddle board). The waterways shown in the images below are wild and potentially dangerous environments, which is part of their appeal. Don't venture out on the water unless you're confident you have the skills to deal with this awe-inspiring wilderness.
