Winter is upon us, so I like to keep the pool covered to as much as I can, to retain whatever heat there may be. Which, in all honesty, isn’t much.
Yes, I have heating for the pool, but due to the cold, ambient temperatures that Old Man Winter brings, the water doesn’t stay warm for long, and loses heat quicker than it would in spring, summer, and even autumn.
It takes a lot of time and energy to bring it back to normal temperatures in this climate, and whilst I will ensure it doesn’t reach freezing cold temperatures, the water will feel chilly.
So, anyone deciding they want to get into the water during winter time, be warned, it will be cold.
Of course, that doesn’t mean to say that photoshoots in the pool room are out of the question. Definitely not. The room itself is still good enough for poolside shoots, or however else you’d like to shoot in the pool room.
I just wouldn’t recommend getting in the water itself right now.
