I asked this fellow if I could photograph him taking several plunges into Lake Ocoee. It was about 95F this afternoon and the cool water was VERY welcome!

    Neat shot. I might be tempted to try something like that if I were 50 years younger.

    LOL at Gary!! My concern wasn't age, but being in close proximity to snakes!

    Wow! How refreshing that looks and a great way to cool off. After having a heat wave with the heat index level at 119 degrees a couple of days ago...I would have jumped in there snakes and all...well maybe...I would have to think about it.

    A true summer scene, it looks like fun and a great way to cool off and have fun ... but, if there are snakes, I wouldn't go either!!! I have made jumps off of a rope like this when I was younger, now I just enjoy watching others do it : )

    Great capture and comp. Don! Yesterday I think I would have readily taken the plunge, snakes be damned! However, today the temps have dropped and my brain is cooling back down to somewhere near normal, so I would take a pass on the leap now. :) Bravo, Don!!!

    Unlike where Patty is in Maine, temps haven't dropped a bit in Dallas. This looks so....inviting, Don, despite the snakes.
