Friendly fire

I thought I would choose something a little more livelily for today's photograph.

Amid all the sightseeing, there was occasion to grab snow and surprise your fellow stroller with an ice ball in the face. Fortunately, even though I was engrossed taking this shot, the snowball hurtling toward me lost velocity and hit my body and not my face (or camera).

It was about this time that the D200 starting to jam, the cold really getting to it. With all the snow falling, the temperature was in negative double figures, especially exposed in the wind, and we could only stand short periods outside before we fled inside for warm drinks.
