Swingers Wanted!

This rope swing will wait patiently until next summer.

I used a 500mm lens to pull the lakeshore in closer to the swing.

Dennis what a pleasant reminder this image was for me, in my youth, we use to have one of these roads, except at the bottom we tied a branch so you could sit on it, then swing back in and the next person sat on your lap, well we had a total of 4 people, I was sitting on the branch, the rope broke, splash what fun #3435413
