It’s amazing how water, that plainest of things, can be so magical. It’s one of the few liquids whose solid form is lighter than it’s liquid form – so wildlife can live underneath it when it freezes – it makes up 70% of the planet’s surface, and we’re made of a goodly amount of it. Kate and I had the lido and sauna to ourselves today. It was strange. The water was measured at 0.5 degrees C, I managed 300 yards, but the hardier sex of the species, Mrs Ape, clocked up 400 yards. We took it easy and played with different angles with the camera. I hope you like them.
Ape – 300 yards, Mrs Ape – 400 yards, 0.5 degrees C
