In a bit of a rush
I was in a big rush this morning ... and I found myself running out of time to take more shots .. a shame because the water was (almost) back to it's usual clarity and I would have loved to take more shots - specially as there were subjects galore in the pool - Anyway I first swam my 10 lengths before grabbing my camera - the water felt sensational! I really enjoyed my swim as I'm sure a lot of you did too! one or two Celsius more and we'll be back to "summer temperatures" :) Hey' I'll do my mile then! In fact I set myself the goal to swim 30 lengths - not every day :) but a want to get my stamina up ...
Before having top rush off I took some shots and wanted to experiment a bit more with the kind of shots I started taking yesterday - it does add a certain dynamic .. like Clare said in her comment she posted yesterday! Thanx for that Clare -It's so cool to get comments! Thanx also to Alex who usually leaves me comment too!
Pip trying out yet another wet suit - this time a sleeveless one
Pips has entered a swim where participants have to wear a wetsuit - being a "pure cold water swimmer", however, Pip doesn't own a wetsuit ... she's finding swimming it restricting
Julie on her way
It's lovely how the water undulates during Alison's breaststroke swim
Hilary was such a good sport about having yesterday's (unflattering but "fun"!) picture of her on the blog that I thought I'd better get an action shot of her on today! We did have a laugh about shot this morning at the pool ... Hilary is really a great sport!
I love the lovely reflection of the doors!
I find this shot confusing but interesting at the same time ... can you figure out what's going on in that Busy shot?:) I'll tell you: Alfonso (blue cap) is swimming in one direction while Alex (you can just spot his orange cap) is swimming in the other! The shot would have been more effective without a person waking along in the background - I feel this is what makes the shot so "busy" - But hey, Margy is watching a swimmer from pool side (giving swimming tips)
Ivan looking rather cold after his 12 lengths - "that's the most I've ever done!" hey, well done Ivan a PB (personal best)!
