Photo of the Day - Arctic Hare

So in memory of that trip, and to pay tribute to today's balmy -29 (with wind chill) here in Canmore, I decided to show off one of my favourite images from the Churchill adventures: an arctic hare huddled in the leeway of a big rock as snow hurls around it. That day was about -45 with the wind chill and I remember barely being able to stay outside shooting for more than five minutes at a time. I was wearing four pairs of pants, along with four tops and a full down jacket. And I was still getting cold!
Unlike this hare, I've decided to unhuddle myself from the warmth of my bed today to continue this progression through the edits of my long-forgotten images. A 12-hour flurry of activity yesterday has taken me all the way to June 2009 in my editing process, with haughty goals of reaching 2010 by week's end. Wish me luck! And I hope you enjoy all the 'new' images I'll be posting....
