More than 40 hardy swimmers have braved the icy cold waters of Loch Ken at Crossmichael, near Castle Douglas for the annual Ne'erday swim.
The charity swim in the village started more than 30 years ago and has raised thousands of pounds for village clubs and organisations as well as national charities.
The swimmers braved a water temperature of only four degrees and this year they were joined by a four-year-old Newfoundland called Rupert who decided it was better to go by paddle board along with owner Mathew Williams.
