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 ... ;-)))

on vanlentine's day

    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 !!!

  • Verena F. 02/10/2008 21:26

    Umwerfend, das riesige Gespann, die Wettkampf-Stimmung und die Freude der Hunde ist spürbar. Bei so einem Rennen dabei zu sein ist auch noch mein Traum!

    Gruss Verena
