A narrow canyon in Newnes Forest (revisited)

4th April 2004

Trip Notes

Our original plan for Sunday involved a much longer day visiting a more remote canyon, but mainly due to heavy rain the night before, we opted for an easy day and returned to a small but impressive dry canyon previously visited (for me anyway) in July 2003.


Camera Info.

All photos were taken with my new Canon IXUS 400, and for canyon and low light shots I've now upgraded from a tiny little bendy leg tripod, to a slightly bigger bendy leg tripod with a ball joint head.
