Artist's Description

A small section of the swimmers and crowd at the 2010 annual Loony Dook in South Queensferry, Scotland on New Years’ Day.

The water, as always, was freezing cold (it is a tributary of the North Sea after all).

Residents and tourists descended on the town’s High Street area well in advance of the mid-day dip to ensure they had a good vantage point. And they were not disappointed.

Camera: Canon EOS 450D (Digital Rebel XSi in the USA)
Lens: Tamron 70-300mm

BEST VIEWED LARGER

Single RAW image tonemapped in Photomatix Pro 3.2.
