Two dogs enjoying winter in Winnipeg

Angus and Fergus enjoying a mild winter day.  Fergus is much larger than Angus already, and alot slower as you can see.  It took a great deal of patience to get this photo, and a lot of deletions.  I shoot mainly with the Canon 5D Mark II and as great as this camera is, it is not a true action or sports body, but with good technique the servo tracking is more then capable of capturing action sequences.  The problem then comes down to composition and the fact that 99% of the facial expressions and leg positions of these two goofballs don’t work out, but in the end a few usually do.

It’s been a long winter, start the warm up already!

Finally a break in the chilly winter weather, the spring melt has finally arrived.  I love the clean simplicity of winter photography, but there just comes a point when you’ve had enough and long for the sound of birds and running water.  It will even be nice to feel the pavement and grass on your feet once again.

 

Angus did get a lot of use out of his winter coat, but now has a case of cabin fever.
