This is an old image that I brought back for a current challenge. I shot this at Long Lake in Littleton, Massachusetts about 7 years ago. The boy was just about to jump in and I managed to get the shot. I’m usually not that quick!

Cropped and processed with Nik color Efex 4 and Viveza.

Nikon D80 and Nikon 24-120mm lens at 142mm.
