As ever, it was a difficult decision choosing the winner of our H2Open / Selkie Reader Photo Contest. From over 100 entries we eventually whittled it down to our first, second and third choices, and four runners up. First place goes to Pat Denston, who wins a bundle of kit from Selkie Swim Co.
The competition for our October/November issue is now open so if you have great pictures from your summer swims, email them to us and you could be next issue’s winner! Full details here.
Our Editor’s Choice is this beautiful image of Pat Denston testing the water in Iceland. We thought that it captured perfectly that moment of trepidation before being immersed in the freedom of the open water.
Second place went to Katia Vastiau with this image of her and Francesca Fay having a ball swimming off Tresco, Isles of Scilly.
Third place goes to Siobhan Russell with this image of ecstatic Myrtleville Swimmers after the RNLI 2km Myrtleville to Church Bay Swim.
