Expedition Selfie

Your Shot photographer Saulius Damulevicius took this self-portrait in 2016, while on the first Lithuanian ski expedition over the frozen Baltic sea. "Although I broke one of my ski bindings and even got into the freezing water while crossing the fresh icebreaker lane," he says, "we finished our expedition successfully."
