Jumping for Joy/ Watery Wednesday

Falling into the Talbot River, Ontario

He looked like he was trying to fly but couldn't get any lift. It was a long way down!

 Swimming to shore so they could jump again

To jump and swim, three boys had ridden their bikes to the top of the bridge I was standing on. They were having a great time and were delighted I had my camera to document their bravery. 

Even though I was using my telephoto lens, the boys still appeared to be a long way down.

I took several pics of the Kingfisher yesterday and then off he went. Do you suppose he was posing for me? They are such a surprise to see. MB

Great shots of summer fun. That takes me back to my childhood. We used to jump off a bridge into the Neuse River on the coast, although we weren't supposed to do it. No one ever got hurt.

I wonder how cold the water was? I'd like to swim there, but I don't think I'd like to jump into the water from a great height. Too much water would go up my nose!

This looks so cool and wonderful from where I am viewing it in the southern desert of New Mexico!

Roberto Machado Alves said...

Thank you for visiting my blog and I know that Sugar Loaf is famous in Canada.

A perfect summer experience. And the boy who jumped is aware that he's being photographed.

Oh, wow! that was the most perfect moment! Freezing the moment was just superb.

Hilda said...

Just the thought of it makes my heart want to jump out of my chest. I'm such a chicken.

But they sure do look like they're having lots of fun!

Hildred and Charles said...

Marvelous summertime picture, - a great capture and if he couldn't get the lift to fly he could certainly lift other's spirits with memories of happy days.

Summertime...the living is easy and the boys are having such fun! Great capture.

Luna Miranda said...

what joyful scenes!:p the first photo is fantastic!

jabblog said...

In your first photo it looks as if the boy is jumping forever. I was going to say falling but he is actively engaged. Great fun on a warm day!
I love the harvesters in your previous post. Those machines look fearsome but the people who designed them have a wonderful understanding of the requirements.

'Tsuki said...

It looks so refreshing... I could actually use a pool like this one... The weather is too hot, actually...

paul said...

Great shots, especially the first one, and the second one below provides an excellent context.
