Morning Dip

By Dugi34  
An elderly gentleman takes his daily exercise with a dip in Grasmere.
Wearing a thong and a smile he said "not to mind him, he did this every day, as he lived next to the lake", he then waded in without so much as a gasp as the cold water closed around him. Brrrr!
I didn't have time to change lenses so had to shoot this at 24 mm.

That's one brave (or daft) man but this is a great capture.
