Ice, Sea, Sunset

This was taken with G1 and B-300 tele during the last moments of a sunset in Helsinki. The day had been really sunny and the sky was clear (you can see Estonia coastline back there). Many people went for a walk on ice which is something some Finns always want to do even if there are warnings all over the place. These two guys got back without problems, but I wouldn't have gone so close to open sea myself. Some people actually have this hobby of swimming in an icy water - it'll kick on some pleasurable hormones in the body and after a while you can get addicted to it. I can think of several ways to get my hormonal activity running but dropping into subzero water is definitely not one of them!
