Yes -- what a shame the two scantily clad young ladies are there spoiling the lovely view of the river...

You're in your avatar?? Nope, can't see you...

At least your response now makes me think it's not two seperate rivers, which was my first thought. Was thinking the bottom one had a UK feel to it.

Well I have to admit it does look UKish (the second pic), but I was continuing the talk about the above pic! Sorry if I caused confusion.

The first one was taken on June 8 and the second on November 18, so unless it was a very long trip... they're different rivers :-)

The first one could be so many French Alps rivers, but is it the Guisane?

My guess would be not above the Ubaye Gorge, but the section above the Racecourse?

Or...lower Claree? Although, not looking at the second pic for that guess.

Is it even the French Alps? Could be Corsica?!

I would say the second is definitely British... look at the trees! Typical British autumn paddling pic. North Wales somewhere is my bet ;-)

Fresquiers, or something like that. It's a pretty good section.

Probavly a low water run on the Ogwyn, based purely on the date of the photo and the fact that Georgey boy lives in Bangor.

edit: I have just been informed that I actually took the second photo! It's not the Ogwyn.
