Let it Snow

Finally we had a real winter! Although it came late, we have not had this much snow since the winter of 2011/12.There was a lot of photography I wanted to go do this year but two things happened to me that prevented much of it. One was that I needed knee surgery which I did on March 1. Second was that my shoulder gave out and is in need of replacement which I will have done next October. Until then physical therapy is holding it together (I hope) until this summer's charter season is done. I picked a bad time to have shoulder issues as I had no choice but to shovel tons of snow. So all I did this winter was walk Storm all over the place. After my knee was worked on we did a lot less walking of course. I often carried my camera and had a lot of fun photographing Storm in the deep snow. Here are some of the shots I got. You can see how much fun Storm had!

Poor Storm had to swim in the snow much of the time!

One of the best action shots of Storm this year. A really hard shot to get!

Storm in the mountains above McHugh Creek

This was the shot I was looking for but I chopped his head off with the telephoto. He really moves fast!

Where's Storm?
