Nikon D2X

Capture Date/Time: July 12, 2006 19:07
Aperture/Shutter Speed: F/5.6 - 1/320 sec
Focal Length: 70mm
ISO: 320
Flash: None

These swimming shots clearly fascinate me. It ended up being a very foggy day, and the atmosphere in the lake was very surreal. I was surprised, actually, that they were allowing people to swim so far out given how thick the fog was. The seagull captured in the shot here is indeed real!

** You may have noticed that the archived shots are mis-aligned with the old template. I am still in the long and tedious process of up-rezzing all 320 of the previous MRB shots. Once those are all done I'll be able to upgrade the entire site. Right now it's only the homepage that uses the new template. Thanks for your patience as I continue the upgrades to the site.

Fantastic capture Mike. I love how the water blends in with the fog. The bird also adds a lot to the shot.

hehe, Mike, this is a great one! Very surreal indeed, this simmer with their green caps and big goggles!

Looks like the swimmers are winning against the gull. I really like the mist here. Very beautiful.
