Fergus the Great Pyrenees enjoying a late season snowfall, age about 1 1/2 years.
For a fun comparison, here he is a year earlier at about 5 months of age.

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.
Cold morning sunrise, I can still feel or rather not feel my frozen fingers.
My own personal favorites of Winnipeg winter shots. Purely subjective, of course, because often there is more behind an image than can be seen by the viewer. In no particular order, but since winter has officially arrived on the Canadian Prairies it seemed fitting. Today is the first real snow day, the kind where you shovel your walk/driveway and an hour later it has blown back in, looking like you had not shoveled at all.

And just to be fair, Freeze up on the Red River. Technically just north of the city.

We all know weather in the Canadian Rockies can change at the drop of a hat. On a very recent trip over a two day period, we arrived to rainy, foggy and overcast skies. The following day we had a large dumping of very wet snow, temperatures well below freezing, this included power failure and satellite failure in our hotel. The next day the snow melted and soon after, sunny mid July conditions prevailed, with the temperature approaching 20 Celsius.
