Sons of Ireland Polar Bear Plunge

With my holiday vacation canceled due to the blizzard, I was able to spend New Years in Asbury Park. So for the first time I went to see the Sons of Ireland annual Polar Bear Plunge on New Years Day. Hundreds of people showed up to frolic in the freezing water. The air temperature was a mild 50 degrees which made photographing the event more comfortable than I had anticipated. I shot with my new Canon 7D. With a burst rate of 8 frames per second, I shot on shutter priority at 1/500 second. That yielded many shots to edit out, but the result was some great images capturing the action and the mood of the day.
