Blissfully unaware… by lomokev
Blissfully unaware that massive wave that is about to knock him over. this is form the annual brighton christmas day swim.
From a photographers perspective its all over in about 10 minutes, realistically you can only get about 5 or 6 decent shots each year, its really tricky environment to shot in especially if its rough. Nothing will top the picture I posted at the beginging of the week not even in a month of christmass days.
Conditions on Christmas day 2011 where so bad that the event was official called off but that did not stop approximately 100 people going in watched by thousands. Quite a few need help getting out. one person needed rescuing by brighton swimming club members, he walked off the beach to an ambulance but need help to get there.
