I’ve been meaning to attend this for a few years now, but it’s always too cold to bother. Plus, it’s way out in the west end and I can’t park anywhere near that section of the beach, so there’s a long walk involved. Today wasn’t much different, actually. It was around -5 but with a strong, bitterly cold wind. Just walking from my car to Sunnyside Beach I was frozen. And I had multiple layers on. I can’t begin to imagine how it was for the poor soles jumping in the icy lake for their polar dip. Anyway, I got a couple of nice shots. It all happened so fast it was difficult to figure out where to stand or how to shoot them to get anything interesting. I shot in shutter priority at 1/500th of a second, with my ISO on auto with a ceiling of 1600. I let the camera decide on aperture, since I wanted the fast shutter speed in order to freeze my subjects. I knew they’d be moving pretty fast to get out of the lake. Anyway, it was nice to get out today. Back to work tomorrow and then the weekend’s mine again. Hope you had a nice new year’s eve. I stayed in and went to bed early. Happy 2015.
