You can see from the changing colours in the trees that it is Fall. The waters of Otter Lake, Ontario, Canada, are frigid!

My stepson, avid boarder, simply could not resist the chance for some wakeboarding so he suited up and rode the waves, grabbing plenty of air, until his hands were too frozen to hold onto the tow rope any longer and his unprotected feet were numb!

This shot was my personal favourite from the half hour of boating up the sheltered long arm, because I managed to catch his launch – the explosion of spray from the lake surface.
