Snap swimming


Back from 2 weeks in sunny Spain with temperatures around 25C each day - rather a shock back to autumnal Scotland.  So I decided that for my first snap set using my holiday photos I'd remember the heat that allowed us to swim most days - actually snorkel mostly - in gloriously clear water with lots of little fish to watch.

We were staying in one of those white villas. A nice walk through the pine trees and down steep steps led to a series of rocky coves and beaches. All of those rocks were hard on the feet but once we took to wearing dive shoes into the water it was all much easier with less scratches.  The water was cool to get into (as it always is) but comfortable once immersed and the sun dried you off nicely once out. Yes that is me in near silhouette in my snorkel gear, beautifully back lit by the sun.

Looking forward to seeing what has caught your eyes this week

It looks just gorgeous Helena, 2 weeks of sun and beautiful pictures to look at on grey days. You are one brave lady to get in the sea!

Well, how cool is that? I have never snorkelled in my life. It certainly looks like a beautiful spot.

A lovely coastline - this must have been close to heaven! Your photos really show it at its best ... Good for you for swimming in the sea - always very therapeutic, I think.
