Friday fold: Candigliano River, Italy

Posted by Callan Bentley

Reader Michael Hiteshaw spotted some amazing folds this week while watching Kayak Session TV on YouTube.

Though there’s a dramatic arc of “saving” a deer, both Michael and I felt our eyes drawn to the canyon walls where there are gorgeous folds in several sizes and shapes, with an emphasis on chevron folds:

The video description on YouTube reads:

Fabulous action by whitewater kayaker Fabrizio “Gass” Capizzo who saved a deer from drowning while paddling with friends on the Candigliano river near San Marino in Italy. The funny part is he almost cares more about the deer than his fellow paddler who swam… 🙂
Thanks for alerting me to this one, Michael! Happy Friday to all.
