Today Oscar and I decided to throw ourselves down a sparsely snow-dusted mountain on a length of plastic strapped to our feet. We've done this before, and while snowboarding can eventually get to be fun I need to follow a strict routine to get through the experience:
1. Get up on the board (after taking AGES to do so)
2. Promptly fall over
3. Get up
4. Fall over
5. Want to go home, but am stuck halfway down a mountain
6. Get up
7. Don't fall
8. Go for a while and feel better about things
9. Promise to go again tomorrow
10.Encounter the chairlift (whole other story)
I adhere to this routine every year and find it works for me.. at least I got to get a picture while up there.
Not too shabby the views around this place. The one thing I've started to realise about the point-and-shoot is that while it's small and easy to carry around, I miss my SLR. I tried to take this picture again on the way home when it was much darker.. it just wouldn't work. I couldn't play with the shutter speed and aperture like I usually do.
Oh well, at least it's a nice snazzy blue colour.
