RaceToTheSky


RaceToTheSky, originally uploaded by MontanaRaven.

I fell in love with this dog. She was a classic beauty -- so graceful, elegant, coy yet fully engaged with me and not afraid to look directly at me. I am putting together a collaborative photo essay with my friend, Chris Lombardi, who works at NewWest Network in Missoula. Our photo essay is about the mushers and dogs who run the annual sled race in Montana, Race to the Sky.

Please check back for updates on the essay (it will be published next week) and for more photos and stories about the dogs and the race here on my blog. Thanks for looking.



If you can't wait, you can see more photos in the flickr set about the race, by clicking on any of the photos in the sidebar. Enjoy!

Oh, that face! What a beauty. Looking forward to pics and essay. Sled dogs are remarkable animals.

So good to see you around, Pam, thanks for commenting. I've been pretty irregular about posting on my blogs lately, that it makes me smile seeing a comment from you here. Hope you're doing well.

Reminds me of the Disney sled dog movie with a beauty named Miya. Gorgeous shot!

What a beautiful dog. The eyes are very expressive. I love the snow on the fur.

She is gorgeous. (I'm thinking calender girl beauty here!) I'm looking forward to your essay.

PS--now I have to share your flkr site with my hubby. He is such a dog person, I can hardly wait for him to see these wonderful photos.
