Wild Swimming In The River Trent by Rod Johnson

Wild Swimming In The River Trent

The two people photographed, were wild swimming in the river, at Burton on Trent, Staffordshire, England. I was at the river bank when they arrived, they waded in and set off, swimming upstream. I was there taking photos of damselflies and trying to shoot a large dragonfly, which would not settle long enough for me to focus on it. After about 30 minutes the couple returned and I had a chat with them. They said their swim was very refreshing, but it was hard going, while swimming against the strong current. It was a very hot day and I wished I could also have gone for a swim.
