Weekly Photo Challenge – Selfie

In order to get you in the mood for the Winter Olympics, I’m sharing my selfie from Breckenridge, Colorado where I spent the day skiing Colorado Champagne Powder. And it was a powder day – about a foot of it! I am smiling under the ski mask, but this is how I spend a cold, snowy day on the slopes bundled up and cruising!

My offering for this week’s challenge: A shot taken for an underwater photography class at the Denver Aquarium. This curious and seemingly grumpy red snapper got so close to my lens that I couldn’t focus on it’s face. the camera did, however focus on Peter having a beer in the bar while watching me dive in the Aquarium!

With the frenzy of chores, Peter and I did manage to see a movie on Sunday, and we went for a 31 mile bike ride yesterday. Here’s a shot of the river from the parking lot at the trailhead of the Poudre River Trail. It’s one of our favorite paved bike paths in our area. It starts in Windsor, Colorado and winds its way along the river for almost twenty miles to the town of Greeley. We were able to take our road bikes and ride at a fairly fast clip, while passing beautiful river scenes, red-wing blackbirds, pelicans (yes, we have pelicans in Colorado), hawks and sandpipers. We turned around at the 15.5 mile mark when we encountered these:
