Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie

Selfie was nominated as the word of the year last year by Oxford Dictionaries, narrowly beating bitcoin and twerk.  I’m not really a selfie-taking type of person, or even someone who will ask others to take pictures of me.  In fact, I rarely take pictures with any people in them.  It has to be quite an exceptional situation for me to think about it.  Like this one.

I know, its a terrible picture.  You’d barely recognise me from it.  You’d barely recognise anyone from it.  That’s because the phone I took the picture on was in a waterproof cover, and the rain was so heavy it was running over the screen, over my hand and down the sleeve of my jacket.  But as the wind was blowing the rain down my face and neck, and down the front of my jacket, I didn’t notice it too much.

I couldn’t really see the screen either, as my eyelashes were filled with windblown rain.  And the wind was so strong, it felt like nails on my skin.  Gusts were pushing me off my feet.

I love the mountains.
