Hi, my name is Chris Snyder and I reside in beautiful Western North Carolina, USA. I have been a swim coach since 1990 and have been selling my photography since 2006. My wife and I are avid mountain bikers and also are very involved in animal rescue. We always have a menagerie of some size and makeup. Most of my images are of nature whether wildlife or landscapes. I hope you enjoy.

    Beautiful shot, Chris! I agree. This would make a wonderful christmas card the way it is so naturally framed with the pines and snow.

  • Thanks Jane. I am using it for my December shot for my pony calendar. I am looking into making some Christmas cards from these shots too.
