/Dog Sledding in Listvyanka, Siberia

(32 Photos)

As the second part of my 30th birthday present from my partner Heather, while we were in Listvyanka, Siberia, Heather paid for me to have a few kilometers on a dog sled. There aren't any photos of me, but there are some of Heather in the sled and some of the huskies.

Photo Albums in General

I thought that it might be wise to put a couple of hints on how the album pages work.

The albums have been categorised to make the list a smaller. A category can be chosen from the main album page. This page displays a hexagon picture created from several smaller hexagons. Click the smaller hexagons that relates to the category and you will be shown a list of albums within that category.

Yellow text is generally a link and you can click on it to see another page

For files labelled [filename.jpg]: these are picture files and if you click on them you will get a slightly bigger picture. Full size photos are available from me, but there wasn't enough space on the website for the full size pics.

For files labelled [filename.avi]: these are video files and have sound. If you move your mouse over them they will start to play. Hit the "Esc" on the top left hand side of your keyboard to stop them, otherwise they will stop when they have finished playing. Video files on average last between 10 and 15 seconds.

A folder structure should be displayed in the top left hand corner of the album display. You can click on these links to get to all albums, current category, or event.
