HVL Polar Bear Dip is New Years Day at 12:00 but I recommend arriving around 11:30 as people gather.

So a couple of points if you are coming to take photos ( If you are jumping in, I have no tips.  I don't do that.  :)

  • It is supposed to be rainy, so cover your camera with a plastic bag.
  • Use Shutter Priority if you are not comfortable with manual mode
    • Use a fast shutter speed 1/500th of a second or faster.  People will be running and shivering and you need a fast shutter speed to get sharp photos
    • Also, use auto ISO if needed
  • Take a lot of photos
