As the days begin to shorten and we begin to sample the chill of fall, the temperature of Lake Fairlee’s water slides from warm to refreshing to brisk. Soon the water will be downright cold. Already the divers’ wet suits are barely adequate to their tasks.
Here the divers are huddling in the sun, basking after a cold morning in the water removing bottom barriers. They take an hour for lunch, just enough time to warm up before they have to go back into the cold dark.
And I liked the picture.
