See them in the river? These are New Year's swimmers who are taking a bath in Rhine river every first week in January. (A cold and dangerous endeavour, but these people are well prepared and a life boat is nearby.)

So wonderfully photographed, like crazy ducks, love your pov, perfection in the line of the
bridge, one of the photos that expose the perfection and mastery of your lines. The very best !!~
