Off-Season Scene Seen Seizin’ Two Hemispheres …

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Off-Season.”

At first I couldn’t find any off-season scenes; then I found too many but am using all of them.  They are all near-midwinter: three in UK from a while back, and one recent one in South Africa.

  4. Perfect pics for the challenge, Col. I think it would take more than a few degrees drop in temperature to deter your little swimming star. She’ll go far. 🙂

    Double Locks, was that in Exeter? I had to enlarge the last photo to see R’s hand.
