The post-storm sunrises of late spring are some of the most breathtaking spectacles of the year. So of course they take place when my current camera is on life support (more on this later)…
Michelle, Beth, and I got in a 6:00am swim under perfect conditions – calm lake, 66F water temperatures, and abundant sunshine. Since we had the entire swim area to ourselves, I went out closer to the buoys. I ditched the wetsuit in favor of just my jammers, and I was quite comfortable throughout the swim. I did, however, notice some colder thermocline layers in several spots just below one meter of depth.
As it turns out, I could have captured this morning’s images for the OWC site. While the viewing screen is disabled (i.e. fried), my CyberShot still takes great pictures and videos. It’s just that I have no idea what it’s taking until I get home and hook it up to my computer! So essentially, I’m operating in retro mode – only I don’t have to use film or wait (and pay) to have it developed.
This is all about to change, though. I have another more advanced CyberShot on the way that’s shockproof, temperature proof, and WATERPROOF.
So be prepared for some really exciting new pictures and videos – literally in the lake itself!
