Photographer's Note

The ship that I work on had stopped for a day of rest and recreation, and we happened to be in the bay where Sir John Franklin had spent his last winter before disappearing. The Capt. decided that we should try out our survival suits since it was a nice clear day and a warm temperature of about 7 degrees C. The shot was taken in a hurry just before I took the plunge myself. My camera was on automatic for the shot. This picture was reduced from 2560x1920 to fit the TE site.
