WHAT A BEAUTIFUL way to spend new year's eve, while on holiday in the Lake Chelan area where I discovered the perfect four-legged snow model. While snowshoeing in the beautiful mountains of eastern Washington under crystal clear blue skies and a cool fifteen degrees, Bailey was in retriever heaven bouncing playfully in the pristine pure white snow.
Our paths crossed with Eric and Karen as they cross country skied, with Bailey. I originally saw them taking pictures of each other with their camera. So I walked over to ask if they would like me to get the three of them as a group with their camera. My plan all along was to meet them and ask if I could take a few shots of their beautiful dog. I took about twenty minutes with Bailey, which was time well spent. I could have easily photographed Bailey until the sunset dipped behind the wondrous Echo Ridge mountains which would have been a four hour photo session. There's never enough time … is there?
