So – its was an insane weekend for me! I shot the Point to LaPointe Swim for the Bayfield Rec Center, then I shot a wedding later that day, and I just got done with a senior portrait. Whew – I am tired – but not nearly as tired as those swimmers who did a two miler across Lake Superior from Bayfield to Madeline Island!
It started out calm, but then the wind REALLY picked up! The low sun made the shots VERY dramatic…I think this one of my favorites of all the Swim photos – the ferry trying to avoid the crowd…One of the strangest things that happened was me running into a friend of mine that I hadn’t seen in nearly 7 years! He looked at me and asked “are you the official photographer?” and then we realized we knew each other!! Here he is looking like”what WAS I thinking?”…This is the man who thought up the event – Oly! And here is a group of swimmers heading through the white caps… and one swimmer having a wave break over him.This is my neighbor Steve finishing up the race!And Bayfield local Lissa finishing up with her escort Gail from Living Adventure…This group was AWESOME – and very supportive of their mom!
This gentleman just looks happy to be done!This was the sweetest shot of the day by far:
Thank you to everyone who participated!!! All the photos will be up on my site on 8/20/08!
