Black Lake is near Perth in Eastern Ontario, about 1 hour from Ottawa. A group of fellow swimmers went for a late-in-the-year lake swim on October 20th, 2011. Fortunately it has been a long autumn and the water temperature was cold but forgiving. Not only that, it was a beautifully warm day above the surface so climbing out dripping wet was not the ordeal it might have been.
Later in the evening as we settled indoors for a meal and a beverage I had to dash back outside with my camera and tripod so as not to miss the magnificent sunset that was unfolding.
