We got a white Christmas this year. This is a shot from the day after when the wind was kicking up. This is Raven and Mozart. You can guess which one is the snowflake taster.

Shot in Fletcher, North Carolina

Canon 1DmkIII with Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS L lens at 200 mm. Shot at f7.1, ISO 640 and 1/800

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.
