The Opposite of Today

The Opposite of Today

This picture is pretty much the opposite of what we have in Vancouver today. Although, I'd have to say, since my commute consists of a fifteen minute walk, that what we had today is not that much less enjoyable: we have snow. Lots of it. It's been snowing all day and it looks like it will keep snowing for at least tomorrow. Vancouver gets maybe two days of snow a year - maybe - and it usually melts and is gone almost immediately.

That means I am loving this. Tomorrow morning before work I'm grabbing my cameras and going to shoot a ton of shots. This is rare enough that I need to get some shots of true snow for my collection. It also means that there is an insane amount of snow on the local mountains so the boarding is excellent. Or so I hear because I haven't been able to go yet. That will change in the next week though. Perhaps I'll take thursday or friday (or both) off and enjoy the powdery white goodness.

Now, for the photo which is totally not about snow or snowboarding. It's the beach in front of our hotel in Mazatlan. The horses aren't riding into the sunset, they're riding away from it. Oh well.

It was beautiful and warm and sandy.
