2014 Eagle Island State Park Penguin Plunge


“The 2014 Penguin Plunge to raise money for Special Olympics Idaho. This is one continuous take with a Nikon AW110 in my right hand. In previous years this was done in a portable swimming pool set up in Meridian. This year they moved it a few miles north to Eagle Island State Park, where they cut a big hole in the ice on Eagle Island Pond. The pond is not very deep. but it forms some very thick ice in winter.”
