Paddling

 Paddling on  Frenchman's Bay, December 27!

There was very little ice at the end of December and this athlete was exercising his muscles up and down the bay.


I admired his enthusiasm from the safely of the shore.

Thanks to the last few cold days they are now skating on the bay. I'll wait for thicker ice before I wander out.

I see he is the red, white and blue colours! Lovely reflections.

7C in Haninge today so I'm sure there are a few people here doing the same.

My enthusiasm for paddling in the winter diminishes with the water temperature. I admire his dedication. :-)

Nice shots! Now I can hardly wait till we can try out our canoe!

Kathy said...

I would be so fearful of capsizing and falling in that cold water!

Like the spot of red. Beautiful water reflections.

Reminds me of that old joke:
What's the difference between a canoe and a Canadian?
A canoe tips!

Oh boy that would be cold if something happened.

TexWisGirl said...

love the red, white and blue! :)

Karen S. said...

A beautiful moment to reflect on the water, he's having a wonderful life!

Mary Hone said...

I think the safety of the shore, and not the cold water, is a great idea.

Susan said...

Woah, that would be really cold if he flipped into the water. I'm not that brave. Love the pic!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I imagine they are not a very good ice breaker.

William Kendall said...

Not the kind of water you want to be tipping over into!

Ginny said...

I love that little water splash in the first picture, it is very cool! Also the cool reflections. Was it very cold?

Linda W. said...

That looks cold!

RedPat said...

What a difference from last year, EG!

Sylvia K said...

Well, he's surely braver than I am, but what great shots and an energetic start for my day -- I can always use one of those!! Enjoy your weekend!!

Taken For Granted said...

Nice reflections, but I can just feel the cold in these photos.

Barbara Wójcik said...

Podziwiam te fotografie ciągle i niezmiennie!

mumbaiiteanu said...

The colors add warmth to the cold.
Nice shot!

VP said...

I guess it is cold!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Love the photos but I'm with you! I would watch from the safety of the shore.

José Mendonça said...

Lovely but surely cold, right? :-)

Lorna said...

I have a friend who is also a wonderful photographer, and she just posted a great picture of some Ottawans enjoying a Polar Dip to start the new year. It definitely rivals this one for inscrutable behaviour in the middle of winter.

Andrea Priebe said...

I would be right next to you on the shore ... can't imagine risking a fall into that very cold water. In the first reflection , it almost looks like he went right through the bottom of his kayak into the water ... Brrrr, parish the thought :( Fun Pictures ...

Felicia said...

Stephanie said...

diane b said...

Hope he doesn't fall in the freezing water. Nice reflections.

'Tsuki said...

Nice catch ! I can actually feel the guy making effort through you pics...

Happy New year, dear : I wish you the best for 2015.
