IK&P Picture of the Week

Le Grand Gonflateur himself, Gael A sent me this image to illustrate something. It’s composition and colouring was so magical I’m compelled to elevate it without delay to the IK&P Picture of the Week.
Captured in 2005, the location is the River Epte, a tributary of the Seine in Normandy and site of Monet’s no less idyllic 1899 painting, ‘Waterlilly Pond’ (right). It looks like Gael is sliding down a burst canal bank on his H2, while in the back his trusty compadre observers from the reassuringly stable platform of a Mk1 Sunny gumboat. Behind him a sign warns ‘Access Interdite – Danger [sauf gonflards] and nearby a docile cow nuzzles the trunk of an oak tree quivering in its prime.
A serene snapshot of rubber boating bliss.
