In February, we appreciate every clear and sunny day. Yesterday, Ingkasi and I went out dog sledding – into the sunshine! Let me take you with us, just for a moment….
After some time, as we turn away from the trail and continue uphill, the dogs slow down. Even at -20 degrees celsius, I can feel the sunshine, slightly warming my face.
It`s time to stop and have a look around.
Ingkasi is looking for Polar Bears, and finds a female with 2 youngsters on the sea ice, far away. Too far to capture trough my camera!
The dogs still have lots of energy left when we turn around!
At some point in the afternoon, the warmth of the sunshine seems to be gone. Then, I usually hide inside of several layers of hats and hoods, to stay warm.
The dogs have no such problems. Their thick coat protects them perfectly from this harsh environment.
Today, we went out again. It`s always encouraging to spend time with my powerful four-legged friends!
This time we headed towards Kap Hope.
