Wednesday: Photo of the Day

Skip Cottage Curling just doesn't do 'women in black' very often, but we will make an exception today with this photo of Dace Regza, third on the Latvian team. Wednesday's PotD.

This was taken with my Canon EOS 40D, with a Sigma 70-200mm lens, ISO 1600, f3.5, 1/160 sec.

Aside from the photo, what is interesting about Dace is that she is the oldest female curler on the ice at Champery, at 48 years old. She used to be an international gymnast. She's married to the team coach Ansis, and her two daughters are also on the team. Evita's pic is here, and when her sister took ill, Anete skipped the team, and her photo is here.
