self portrait challenge - my surroundings.

I never, ever take it for granted that I live ten minutes from where I took this photo. Even if it can be this chilly on any given day of the year.

I love this! The focus on you is so crisp and there's just the right amount of blur to the background. Really great shot

I'm just a copycat here - but that is one amazing self-portrait. Your profile is gorgeous.. you can tell there's a chill in the air by your coloring. And the bridge in the back - spectacular.

I used to live in Northern Claifornia but two+ years ago I moved to Idaho and your photo makes me want to cry.

Besides having a lovely profile, great colour in your lips, a snappy blue cap and a perfect whisp of hair across your face the photo is gorgeous. I love the landscape. You just captured it perfectly. Might that be the Golden Gate I see?
