Expected to shoot a lot of photos, but ended up with only a few. Not enough light, rain, snow, cold, to involved with other things (you cannot step of your sleigh to take a pic, unless it is tied up like here for example). Probably will not shoot anything else this month, too busy with other stuff.

Ok, this was my team for two days. Together we travelled a total of 60 miles / 100 km's in two days. Very heavy snow on the first day and -22 Celcius, long day on the sleigh and had to help the dogs a lot of times. 2nd day was much better. Dogs are owned by Sinikka, a Finnish woman in the Salla region of Northern Finland. Tivi, Tirlittan and Taiska are sisters and brothers.

More about my time in Finland and with the dogs here:

And it looks so much better 800px wide.

For me reality is the name of the game, no messing around with the beauty of nature. Great shot!
