Default Winter Sunset Activities

Just took this a few days ago. A group of young kids were fishing and the older kids left to do something else. The youngest of the group jumped at the opportunity try his hand at casting. I figured it was worth capturing.

Hiya (hejsan) Alasdair! I should send him pictures of Finnish winter sunset scenes where Finns are running out of the sauna and running along the beach to jump into a hole in the ice... Yikes... Not me, though... My son can do it, but I can't...

Now, that's an impossible shot. I don't how you did it, but you did it. Good catch Selvin.

Folks,
I lived in Chicago for four years and saw the local polar bear club doing their thing every winter and wondered how it would feel. Good thing I didn't try jumping into lake Michigan during the winter.
In my old age anything under 70F degrees is cold......

Thanks for your comments, yes I do work for the local tourist board and this is a secret conspiracy to get you folks to come to winter vacation in Hawaii.. Just joking before anyone gets the wrong idea.
Aloha

Wow, the scenery itself is amazing, but the child really adds a lot to the shot - really stunning, selvin!!
