Winter Swim



 
"Nice weather" I heard someone say while I was walking at City Beach early yesterday morning. Brrrr is all I could think as I continued rugged up. No way you will catch me swimming at the beach in winter!

  1. Beautiful. Actually does look like nice weather, there actually a bit of sun reflecting off those waves. Better than being in the middle of a east coast low, although if I squint I can just see a tiny bit of blue sky. Spoke too soon - its gone again.

    Love the grainy feel of this shot. Very nice.

  3. Some people are just so 'hardy', I think that's the right word! Very beautiful colours Rae, just see the early morning sun catching the top of waves, perfect!

  4. I agree, it takes a certain constitution to brave cold waters such as this. Wonderful image, full of wintery mood by the sea.

  5. Wonderful shot Rae - it looks every so slightly wild (I mean that as a compliment). And as for that swimmer. Arrest that woman, she's clearly insane!

  6. Craig, I can only agree with you about people who go swimming in winter, but then again for Ken from Montreal, our winters are very mild although not as wet as on the east coast where Ann is. Although there have been some cold snaps here, I am amazed at how much warmer our July weather has been and while it is raining outside at the moment, the amount of rain received is still much lower than normal for this time of year. I guess we will pay for it all in summer with increased water restrictions.
