Early Morning Bathers......



This photo was taken on a very crisp cold winter morning
just as the sun was rising over Boston Bay
The two more-senior ladies silhuetted on the jetty
 had just completed their regular early morning swim
I couldn't help but admire them!

A positively wonderful capture Dianne - love the colours, the contrasts, the design in the reflections and, like you, am steeped in admiration for these 2 brave souls!

I admire your photo. It's so beautiful and you are such a great photographer! Those two ladies on the jetty are very brave indeed! Have a great week, Dianne!

Fabulous! The old dears will probably outlive all of us. And how wonderful must it be, to be swimming in such an amazing sunrise? I might brave your winter (although never mine) to experience those colours.

Anything early-morning is safe from my camera. At least for now...

Magical dawn colours Dianne, and brilliant composition. I don't just admire those ladies..I'm in awe!! I know they've probably been doing it for a very long time, but still.....!!

Arija said...

That is so beautiful, serene and pleasing to the eye.
Once in my callow youth, I swam in Port Phillip Bay in the middle of winter. I don't think I'd do it again.

Virginia said...

I am in awe of this lovely sunrise and the two swimmers! Wonderful photograph Dianne, the silhouettes make this so special.

Wow, elderly ladies bathing in that expanse of space in winter morning! That is absolutely amazing, just like your wonderful sunrise shot!

Barbara said...

Stunning colours and wonderful comp. I could do with some of the cold weather here - we've had an unseasonal heatwave over the last week here in the UK!

Jackie said...

A deceptive picture, in that the beautiful golden glow promises warmth rather than cold. I guess the two brave ladies we would call 'tough old birds' ..!!
Lovely photograph.
