Great North Swim, Windermere, English Lake District
« on: June 24, 2012, 01:01:54 PM »
The Great North Swim finally got underway today on Windermere after being rained off for two days. I grabbed my 5D mk III and my 7D plus a couple of long lenses: 28 - 300L and Tamron 200 - 500.  I haven't gone through the 7D shots yet, but here are some from the 5D:

The media are here in force, BBC2 covering the elite parts of the race and someone is being interviwed on a boat while the elite women swim in water that's below 14 degrees (55F)

Don't tell me, they were afraid of getting wet :P. Sorry, couldn't resist.

It does seem daft having an outdoor swim being rained off but there was a fair bit of debris in the water...


Some with my Canon 7D:
