Winter’s Tale 2013

Winter sled dogs racing in Nizhny Novgorod region, Reshetikha urban-type settlement, Russia, 2013 year — this was my first experience of photographing such an event.

Starting from this day I will photograph new other sled dog competitions all over Russia every year.

It’s a breathtakingly emotional spectacle, where every click of the shutter immortalizes the raw spirit and indomitable bond between human and sled dogs, against the majestic backdrop of nature’s grandeur
