RIVER THAMES

Underwater near Kemble

After photographing the sun rising over the water, where it first emerges from underground, I headed back to my car, which was parked on the A429 bridge. Feeling cold as I had got very wet, I stopped for a quick hot drink and a sandwich before putting my camera into an underwater housing and heading downstream to take underwater pictures of the River Thames.  

A local who saw me in the river with a camera called out "you won't see any fish in there, this part of the Thames dries out completely during the summer".  And he was right.  Over the course of the day, I spent several hours wading in the river and didn't see a single fish, despite the extreme clarity of the water.
