Hank Week Continues

These aren't great shots, but they are a "fun" record of how nasty the weather was over the weekend. 


 A dog and his bone. 


Remember last winter when Maisie hated the cold and snow? Well, who could blame her ;-). She was the only sheep willing to venture out the other afternoon.  Notice Hank doesn't care if she comes near his stuff.  If Graham wasn't such a weenie and had tried to walk behind him... Well, that would have been another "fun" set of pictures ;-).


Off she goes.


Finding a little grass peeking through.


Ugh.  Here comes the wind again.


"Maisie?  You think you should be out here?"


"Nope.  I'm heading back."


"This weather is wearing me out."


"Yeesh!!!"


The look of resignation on her face.  Poor Maisie.  Hank keeps right on gnawing on his bone.  He knows he has limited time...and not due to the weather ;-).

Wow -- you really nailed the exposure in that first image! White dog in the snow ... NOT an easy shot!

Nice work! :-)

Love the interaction betw Hank and Maisie. :-) It's wonderful to see her all grown up and wearing her own coat, after her wobbly (though extremely cute) polyester-coat days (and weeks). :-)

Great series-I can feel the wind!

These are too great shots. Especially the expression on Hank's face when the wind whips up. We've all been there and then some this winter. I like how he crosses his paws in the first picture. Holly does that. Faithful Maisie, hanging with her big furry friend.

He must not be cold laying in that snow, but it freezes me to look at those photos!

Great shots especially of the snow blowing..you must have been cold too! I can see sparkles in that one shot! I love Hank Week:)

Shirley said...

What do you mean, these aren't great shots? Sometimes it isn't about the technical side, its about the story- love it!

Alice said...

Being able to withstand high winds in frigid temps brings the prize of eating a bone in peace. I get the trade off, Hank ;-)

Bookmark that first pic of Hank for next year's calendar. Great shot of him with his eyes closed avoiding the blowing snow too.

I too, love Hank week.

Marcy said...

Blogger just hates me so i am hoping your get THIS comment, loved the shots of the white on white dog and sheep and snow. It seems to me that your light is getting brighter, we are still in Hobbit Gloom. Mama sends her love and wishes to tell you that she and her daughters got into terrible weeds and are full of burrs and so miss c will have no wool this year, their fleeces are a mess. But next year (I will not be breeding due to travel) I am going to put coats on them so they stay clean for the winter.. have a lovely bright wintery day. c
