Being Watched

Ever feel like somone's watching you? We're in the midst of the Photo Workshop dogsled trip. One of the participants, Jamie Thingelstad (http://www.thingelstad.com/) snapped this picture of some of the photographers shooting me and several dog teams breaking trail on Husky Pond today.

Temps have been comfortable for this trip, with highs in the teens above zero. Some of the worst frostbite I've seen photographed is from the hands of professional photographers. They are sometimes forced to use too light of gloves and the metallic camera equipment conducts the cold, causing cold fingers.

The photographers are getting some great pics. Hopefully they may share a couple more for the blog over the next few days.

I like that you posted the tip "Shooting Into The Light". A few more photography tips on your blog would be nice.
