Those of you who regularly read my blog know what I enjoy most is photography and alpine snow skiing. Well, there's chasing women too, but we won't go there.
For the past several days I have been snow skiing and loving every minute of it. But instead of writing about how wonderful it is to ski, feel the cold wind bite your face, listen to the sounds the skis make on the snow, and feel the sensation as the ski's edges bite into the snow, I would like to do something a little different this week.
I have created a slide show (see below) of winter photographs which I really like or have special significance. Most were taken when I was skiing. The photograph of "Franks Post" is special because my father's name was Frank. My favorite (there's always one) is the fireworks display taken on New Year's Eve.
This will be my last post before Christmas. My wishes for you are two things that all the money in the world cannot buy. First is that may you know the joy of loving and being loved. Not the shallow kind that erodes like wind upon sandstone, but love that is deep. Love that lasts through life's joys and sorrows. Love that is like granite --- love that will last for a lifetime. I am a very lucky man to be loved by family and close friends. My second wish for you is good health. Both physically and emotionally.
Merry Christmas! Thank you for reading my weekly blog.
Until next time,
P.S. The slide show is viewed best in full screen mode. Hope you enjoy it.
