Swimming Photos

It turns out that Jon, my canoeist for the Bala swim, is not only an excellent canoeist, but also a pretty good photographer.

I could see him taking the odd photo as I was swimming along and it took all of my will power to not gurn for the camera and give a cheesy smile. Looking at the results, I’m really pleased that I managed that as some of the photos are amazing.

Here’s one of the people entering the water at the start (I’m at the back right).

While here are some actions shots:

And finally, me finishing:

Finished (knackered)

As you can also see, the scenery around Lake Bala is stunning. I obviously don’t get chance to see much more than water though.
