It's a new day in Whitehorse

I threw on my coat to take Maggie for a walk this morning and this is what I saw...

Needless to say, I encouraged Maggie to do her business quickly and popped inside to grab my camera. My camera was loaded up with a memory card and battery, perched on a tripod. That's just where I keep it now. I've given up putting it away because an hour later I'm getting it out again.

People complain about the lack of daylight during the winter here, but for a photographer it's not all bad. We love low light. At this time of year the "golden hour" last all day. Even at noon the sun is so low you can get some impressive images. Mid-summer might be a different story.
