Keepin' cool - Sunday Snapshot

{What you do on a blazing hot Summer day} 

Keepin' cool 1
(Lots of giggling going on here).

A month ago when I bought the Summer pool membership,
I had no idea that this would be the hottest Summer on record in over 100 years.
It's been as handy as a snow blower in the Wisconsin Winter.

Both Grace and Will were initially afraid to try the water slides, tube slides
and lazy river but we can't say that now.

Keepin' cool 3

This pool has been a blast for all of us and a welcome relief from the heat.

Keepin' cool 4

The first snapshot of the girls under the wall of water was
taken with my Nikon d700.
50mm 1.4 lens
ISO 200
1/4000 sec.
Spot metered.

Edited in levels and curves in photoshop to my taste.

Please stop by Stefanie's Sunday Snapshot for many more images.

Love the vibrant colors in these pictures. Pool membership and pools have been the best purchases this summer. I just hope we don't have to use those snow blowers this winter!

What a fun way to keep cool on a hot summer day!!

Your pool sure does not look like the run of the mill community pool. WOW, it looks more like an amusement park!!

Fabulous shots of the kids having fun in the sun!

I love them all Gail. Truly. I'm sitting her trying to think of something to type...but I guess the first sentence sums it up. Perfection.
