National Geographic Editor Favorite / by Eric Beteille

Don't worry, he turned out OK.

Thanks to National Geographic editor Jeanne M. Modderman for marking my summer-themed photo, First Incident of Pool Season, as a favorite on NatGeo's Your Shot. And thanks to my wife and godson for being my ever-present models. I'll admit to a bit of sleight-of-time going on, since I posted this image at the beginning of pool season, even though it was shot in La Quinta, CA on Thanksgiving weekend a few years back. Let's just say the California desert has more than one pool season.
