Thousands have braved the cold and taken part in the annual Saundersfoot New Year’s Day Swim in Pembrokeshire.
Organisers said 2,028 swimmers and thousands of spectators braved the chilly weather.
Now in it's 34th year, the event raises money for local and national charities.
It has become more and more popular since it started on Boxing Day in 1984, when just a handful of locals entered the sea to raise money.
The following year, the swim was moved to New Year's Day, when it has taken place ever since.
The swim countdown was initiated by former Glamorgan & England cricketer Simon Jones and at 12.30pm the swimmers were sent down the sands.
