    This was taken through the chainlink. That’s harder than you think. Thatcher had a huge “igloo” shelter and the light was coming in from the doorway. I was about 10 feet away on my knees trying not to get the mesh to show. Thank you for your kind comments. This was to be in a magazine article that never panned out.
