This is where I experienced life at 3mph, it’s the average speed you travel down the river, the river being the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, USA. I was with five other families, we all knew each other, we where being guided by Boundary Expeditions the best rafting tour company I’d ever come across.


We spent 7 days traveling at 3mph everyday, except when you hit the rapids, sitting back and enjoying the Salmon River wilderness pass us by, we saw bears, deers and naturally salmon, which when the fishermen amongst us caught them, would practice the sustainability for this amazing wilderness of “catch and release”.


This shot was taken at one of the many spots we stopped and camped. I got up as usual at some silly hour in the dark and made my way along the river and then up this precarious slope to a spot I had scouted the previous afternoon. Traveling through the American wilderness was new to me and after seeing bears the day before, my senses where working overtime trying to spot any possible movements around me. Naturally I had bear spray but being dark meant that I could virtually bump into one without realizing it. But my best defense was noise, so humming the Sleeping Beauty classic “Off to work we go” seemed like the perfect choice.


The first morning light didn’t work for me that morning, but a little later just work fine, this was just one of the special moods The Middle Fork of The Salmon River bestowed on me.

  • "The One" Fine Art Portfolio

    “The One“ Fine Art Portfolio imagery has an edition size of one, there is only one hand signed print in existence. The image can be reproduced in my Gift Collection product range, but no larger than a 10 x 10inch surface area in size. Gift Collection products, such as the Fine Art Mini print, actively promote the existence of ”The One” imagery and help increase their popularity and potential value. They also act as a preview for customers looking at purchasing ”The One” imagery.


    “The One” imagery is printed on the most archivally stable media at the time, but they can be reprinted onto a different media or to a different size, at any time by the purchaser, once the current print media is destroyed, this ensures that there is only one print in existence at any one time. Being able to reprint the image at any time overcomes the issues of fading, as all artworks fade, and of accidental damage. This enables “The One” imagery to be passed down through countless generations. For further information on "The One" Fine Art Portfolio see this link below “The Different Portfolio’s”.
