A photo taken by my son on my/his Canon Pro1, as I neared completion of the cross the harbour swim yesterday. Not sure if it should be in hear or in the Family Photos section.

Great action shot. The action is nicely frozen. Good work.

Alady,

No this isnt Sydney Harbour but Newcastle. It is a lot smaller (the race I was in was a social race of around 700 metres, the main race is 1.4 km).

It is an interesting swim as Newcastle harbour is a working harbour, we had to fit in around the comings and goings of shipping. The race start had to be delayed by 10 minutes so a massive coal ship and its 3 or 4 tugs could get out first.



Here is a pick of the 120 or so swimmers all strung out part way through the race
