The Rivers Mellte and Hepste, Neath Valley, South Wales
This is the second outdoor test using my camera in an underwater housing. This weekend I travelled to the Neath Valley in the Brecon Beacons, South Wales and photographed the RiversMellte and Hepste. Wearing a wetsuit and carrying the camera in its underwater housing, tripod, spare clothes, food etc. in a rucksack, I walked along the River Mellte, regularly slipping into the water to photograph it's waterfalls, stones, trees and whatever lay beneath the surface.
