cold wind steals my breath
it roars and blows in anger
but my heart beats hot

This is fantastic, Piet! Your poem is awesome, but even without, I can feel the joy. I had a golden retriever that adored the snow. Thank you for the memory and your artistry!

Both are wonderful. I like the second one best but both capture a dog's joyful playfulness, and that beautiful storm. That second one is just special, because of the curving road the dog is charging down as he approaches us full-steam. Really nice shots, keep sharing your storm stuff! And your poetry!

I love it! Honestly, unlike Steve I usually quietly skip the dog shots. It's not that I don't like dogs or animals in general, it's just not my cuppa. But this dawg (!!) galooping through the snow, rooster-tail of dry fluff whisked away by the wind, and haiku?! Wot's not to like? (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

How fun to compare the two: first is a moment frozen (no pun - ha) in time. The second is all action. We can absolutely see that he has run all the way from beyond the curve in the road. Fantastic!

Both are excellent images Piet !!! I love both for different reasons. The color and lighting, along with the playful actions of running in the snow is a joy to see.

thank you Minnie, Steve, Chuck, Linda, Dave - last evening, it stopped snowing enough to see a flock of birds against the fading light. This morning, the wind is still cold, and it looks like much of the bay has frozen.
