Sannox synchronicity

As we left Garroch Head on Bute, the clouds began to clear from the summits of the Glen Sannox hills. I thought they would make a great backdrop to some kayaking photos. First Phil was a solo paddler. It looked good, but memories of solo synchronised swimming meant I was looking for something else.

Then Jennifer and Tony paddled into the frame and I even got a shot of their paddles nearly parallel.

Phil and Jim nipped past hoping to get in frame.

I managed three kayakers in this shot...

...then four in this one, but it still wasn't quite right.

Unfortunately the team soon twigged I was looking for a "parallel paddles" shot and did everything possible to prevent it! But patience is a great virtue and it was a long way across the Sound of Bute to Sannox...

...then at last, perfect Sannox synchronicity!
