A couple shots from today

First day shooting with my new-to-me Nikon Z5 and its humble 24-50/4-6.3 kit lens. Here are my favorite two shots:

It's the coldest day of the year here so far, (-15°F [-26°C] with the windchill) but we had a good snow three days ago, so it was time to go sledding!  I had to get pretty close at 50 mm and even then crop in quite a bit. I wish for something larger than f/6.3 in this instance, but after all, it's a travel lens, not an action one.
For those of you who grew up in the Snow Belt, do you remember that feeling of exhileration when sledding? I told Stanzi that skateboarding and sledding were my favorite things to do as a kid. She and I made several runs down this hill together, after I put away the camera.

Here's one of my wife sleeping. She's quite extroverted and was reading a book about how to understand and live with an introvert. (me) Bless her heart. She's VERY extroverted, could easily talk and socialize 15 hours a day....but isn't it funny that she couldn't stay awake, reading about introverts!?
