Saturday’s photography class took us outside on a ‘field trip.’ Technically we didn’t go far. About 10 feet outside the door if I wanted to get technical, which I don’t.
The reason for the field trip? Chino Valley’s first ever Arctic Plunge!
There was a bit of a problem though. Apparently they couldn’t corral up quite the number of suckers they had wanted. So a lonely five participants entered the cold water of Chino’s swimming pool.:
Photographers outnumbered the participants by 3 or 4 to 1. :)
But the contestants had a good time anyway, swimming a few laps:
Then it was time for carrying ice blocks across the pool. Because, you know, they weren’t cold enough:
Soon they all started to congregate in one corner of the pool. They looked like they were done:
After twenty minutes in the pool they had finally had enough, and hopped out. After picking up all of the blocks of ice of course:
I can’t say as I envied them, but it sure did provide a great forum for taking pictures!
