We had quite a treat last weekend in Winnipeg. The annual Festival du Voyageur Sled Dog Classic was in town and held races right on the Red River. There were quite a few teams participating in the event, from the younger amateurs right up to the 8 dog Pros. The excitement of the crowds of onlookers was surpassed only by the excitment and noise of the dogs themselves. It was a great time. Photographically very challenging. The cold, the speed, the fans. But we did get some good shots. This is the first time I have shot at this event, and you can bet it won't be the last.
