Maybe this year she will break her own record, let's see. In any case we have exciting plans for this winter - firstly it's snowing today and temperatures are getting cold this week so that is good news for us! I will be shooting Johanna this week so new pics coming out soon. AFP News Agency, Olivier Morin, from Paris is coming to shoot her at the end of February. Päijänne on the Rocks (www.paijanneontherocks.com) ice diving event here in Finland is happening again on the 18th of March so we will be there. And in April/May we are dreaming of warmer waters in the Bahamas :D. Let's see about that too. We have been meaning to go for years, maybe this time we will.
But can't wait for the winter :).
