wilbur the great re-reloaded, once more ...

great! leaders lead . . .

snow buddies left whitehorse for the thousand
m i l e ... ! !
search for fairbanks
this morning
but not wilbur's team -
my favourite leader, team and family
did not make the quest start this year
but i wish them
the very best! of luck
and hope to see them

s o m e w h e r e
very soon.

the quest racers should all be
at the finish line
in a couple of weeks -
i'll wait patiently ...


2005 was my first-try at taking some photos of
'the world's toughest sled-dog race', the yukon quest,
and my efforts were flawed technically.
but this picture will always be a favourite of mine ...
despite my slowness with the shutter button,
wilbur's eyes leave no doubt that he's doing the thing he loves to do,
and his mates -
including two-time-quest-winner
john schandelmeier from paxson alaska -
are more than happy to follow and share the spoils ...

thanks from the heart to zoya for introducing me to the crazy dog kennels team -
a truly great! team-and-family -
and to all the team for letting me wander around with my camera.
some day i hope to take
some much better photographs ... ;-)))

Ich find das Foto stark! Schön den Hunden bei der "Arbeit" zu zusehen. Ein sehr großes Gespann.

Amazing action photo - I can see why it's a favourite. I'm always fascinated by the energy these dogs release. And they seem to enjoy it too! cheers Kathryn

Really strange scene for us who live with heat and dust.
Best wishes from hotter region,

Great action shot, Robert.

Andy Pomplun, 11.03.2006 at 9:39h

like the shot anyways! don't worry about techniques, more important is the memory that's preserved.

Wayne Tsipouras, 11.03.2006 at 9:42h

They look like they are enjoying the work. Well taken Rob. I like it. You have captured the energy in the sport. I believe there are dog team races out here but not in snow. Seems like football without a ball to me..Cheers..Rob

wow robert, great dynamic touch in here; besides that the fresh coldness is to be felt easily... wonderful document of races that we - at this part of the world - seldom get to see and of how lovely and bright wintertime can be !!!
