Golden New Year

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?

On Holiday in Chelan Washington

I FINALLY TALKED Harley into letting me do a photo session with he and his housemates. Photographed in the back garden of his residence. Lake Chelan and the surrounding landscape blanketed in snow in the background.

Many thanks to Rob and Karla!
