Jon's cover shot for ezine #42 looks much like I remember it.

Michael, laughing at the shenanigans. Albert and myself, shooting. Rick using his D13002 QX IR-converted prototype with 82.6mm MF f/0.63457 GL (Glacier Lens) with quantum spherical polarizer. Jay pretending to paddle back in.

Kudos to Jon for the shot. Smart move by Paul to stay out of the frame.

I must say, Jon and Rick were true F Group/Boat material. Have you ever tried to take a shot in a moving leaky raft while Rick/Jon/myself are cracking jokes, and Big Dutch is moving from one side to the other?

Methinks monsieur Mariant put himself in our raft solely for the entertainment value. Actually, meknows this for a fact.
