ON THE COVER: With this summer’s heatwave fresh on our minds (and possibly ongoing!), this month we tasked photographer Andy Newbold to head out and capture a ‘ready to dive in’ scene at Frensham Great Pond. This tempting shot was taken along a jetty at Frensham Pond Sailing Club, who happen to feature along with a number of other watersports fanatics in our five-page Splash! feature from page 49. See more of Andy’s work at newboldphotography.com
