When I look at the photos of the cold and snow that I see many Daily Photo bloggers post this time of year, I appreciate their sacrifices to subject themselves to harsh conditions to share photos of their locations.
They inspired me to do the same and to sacrifice myself to share a photo. I hope you agree that it was worthwhile to get a face full of churning salt water to get this photo. That is certainly a much lesser sacrifice than going out in the snow for some winter photos.
On our travel photo site, Viva la Voyage, this week we are showing some from Merida, the largest city in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, which has retained some of its Spanish colonial charm and has a museum that showcases the Mayan civilization that preceded the Spanish conquest.
