Immersed in shades of blue

The shot is iconic: Australia. Summer. Ocean. Sport. Swimming. What else can you say about it? This was a glorious day ... Christmas morning, in fact, if memory serves me. Calm and hot even at the beach, with the sea like a pond and a perfect, burnished sky. Adelaide's metropolitan beaches are perfect -- shhh! Don't tell anyone, they'll all be here! The colors really looked like this -- I haven't done anything to the image. The Fuji Finepix 6500 relishes these conditions and rarely needs to be taken off automatic ... which gives the photographer a break, too. Photo by Mel, 2007.
