Sepia Saturday

Today’s prompt is this fine gentleman on skis and aren’t winter sports fun to view. (Some folks like to expose themselves to the cold, but I’m not one of them.)

I found some delightful photos on Flickr Commons. Here are a few:

Ski Jumper

They look like they could play cricket or tennis in these white uniforms.

Skijoring

Skijoring (1930s)

 

Skijoring is a centuries’ old sport of horses pulling skiers behind them. I wonder if this could make it into the Olympics.

There are dozens of good photos you can view if you visit Sepia Saturday. I’ve enjoyed several, but many folks are on Blogspot and I can’t be bothered to set up an account to comment. Suffice it to say, they’re wonderful.
