Sun Dog

The term "sun dog" comes from Greek mythology. It was believed the god Zeus walked his dogs across the sky and that the bright "false suns" in the sky on either side of the sun's disk were the dogs…

The perfect winter day. The snow turned the bare trees into art, the crisp air into pure energy, and the contrast of sky and landscape into the most magical sight. Watching Nanuk and Pingo, two winter dogs, enjoying the cold air and snow makes me happy. While they jump into piles of snow, I suspect a little mouse or other animals beneath , I turn 180 degrees. I watch the white branches reaching high into the deep blue sky. The little ice crystals - snowflakes in the air against the sun's light, breaking through the trees. The colors of the sky. It sounds weird, but I just stand there and smile.

I wish I could sit here all day long!

Instead, I take my camera out. Walking two sled dogs and using my camera simultaneously is difficult. But I had to try. I had to try my best to hold this moment. That’s what you see. Maybe 50% of the beauty I saw.
