Coming home from a brush fire on Upriver Drive Friday evening, I spotted this huddle of goslings along the Spokane River.  It was just too cute to pass up. As I approached, the sun popped through a seam in the clouds for just a few seconds. All the other snaps I took under cloud cover had flat cool light, which killed the cuteness.  Nikon D3s, Nikkor 300 mm f/4

Bitter Cold

On my way to work I noticed plumes of mist rising from the Spokane River. The temperature overnight had hit minus 8. The morning sun was still low in the sky so I figured that the backlit mist would make a good snap for my newspaper’s Spokesman.com website. I found this angle with the old U.S. Pavilion left over from Expo 74 as my subject. I had left my hat in the car and by the time I was finished shooting, my ears felt brittle to the touch!
