chilly picnic

My first photo of 2013 is a filler. Not a good start!!

My husband and his coworkers did a polar bear dip today. It was -14c with the wind and the water in Lake Ontario was -2.
About 133 participants....all crazy.
I got a few ok shots but have to ask if I can use them on here....because I'm nice like that.

This shot reminds me of this shot.... http://365project.org/shutterbugger/365/2012-01-29
Wow! Those shadows are amazing and the glittery sparkle in the snow is wonderful. It may be a filler, just, but it's a fav for me xx

This is as good as yesterdays! This must have been a really good scene with lots of opportunities for wonderful snow photos!

Thanks ladies!! I have another b&w tree one that I love but if I post it I'd feel like I'm repeating myself @psychographer @maggiemae

So pretty, Jenn - sun on the snow is just beautiful. . .it seemed that all we got was GRAY!!

If "filler" means a gorgeous shot, not taken on the day of posting, what's wrong with that? I love this! We need to find a better word - "filler" always makes me think it's "less than", somehow. Good enough to fill a space, but not your first choice. My project seems to be mostly shots taken on previous outings.

This is another great photo. I love the shadows against the white snow. It looks amazing.
January 2nd, 2013  
So pretty, I love it. The light on the snow looks so untouched. We had a polarbear swim here on New Years Day too, but I wasn't even tempted. My 6yo wanted to do it but I didn't think it was such a great idea.

@kiwichick I had to spot someone, which means help them get dressed when they're frozen solid. He couldn't feel his feet or even sit down! Probably didn't help that he had the worst hangover ever
January 3rd, 2013  
@shutterbugger So why do people do it!!?? Crazy. My son heard you got a free dip in a hot tub afterwards but I'm really not sure about that.
January 3rd, 2013  
@kiwichick I think it depends on where you go. This was in a small town. HUGE bonfire, but no hot tub. There's one in Toronto that has one....that's obviously the swanky dipping spot
January 3rd, 2013  
super shot...
January 3rd, 2013  
@shutterbugger Well we're in a small town in BC and I don't know where they'd get a hot tub from to put down by the river. I might consider if with a hot tub... but personally I'd rather go snowboarding for the day :)
January 3rd, 2013  
O wow FAV! this is fantastic!
January 4th, 2013  
It may be a filler, but it's star quality. FAV!
