New Year's Day Swim, Barry Island

The New Year's Day Swim is held every year on Barry Island. I haven't ventured on to the beach to photograph the craziness before but decided to give it a go this year with my Olympus OM-4ti and some cheap Fuji C200 film (1.50 per roll).

Having not been to it before I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of photography and I wasn't really expecting to come away with any decent shots, it was more of a reconnaissance so I will be prepared for future events.

It was pretty chaotic when it all kicked off with about 2,000 people running down the beach and a scrum of photographers jostling for position to get shots. Of course, having a manual focus camera with about 18 shots left on a film is probably not ideal for this kind of event but I was quite happy with what I managed to get.

I also took some on my little Olympus Mju II point and shoot, also on Fuji C200.

And no, I didn't swim myself!

OM-1N, OM-10, OM-4ti, 24mm/2.8, 50mm/1.8, 85mm/2, Tamron 70-210mm/3.5
