    Well spotted Mark, great shot. I had to view large to see the couple.

  • Method in the maddness. I looked at it cropped but it didn’t have the same feel.

    No, guys, don’t do it! You’ll end up looking like prunes!!! ;)

    Brrrr… I hope they chose warm hugs, instead. :)

    Great shot, M! The black and white shades really help the viewer to feel their anticipation on contemplating the cold depths before them.

  • From what people were telling me this morning it was actually warmer in the water. Thanks D:)

    I am sure they decided to go home and have a cup of tea instead :)

  • No they actually jumped in. People were saying it was warmer in than out. It was 10c out and our water temp is around 21c. Go figure, I perfer to stay warm and dry.

    Thanks Jeanie
