I forgot that the Strathpuffer 24hr Mountain Bike event was on last week, and after seeing my friend Roddy's shots from the event I felt I just had to brave the cold, the wet, and the early morning start and photograph another local event.
The World Famous Arden Grange & Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain 31st Anniversary Aviemore Sled Dog Rally 2014. Phew.
It turns out the weather was quite a bit worse than expected, and despite myself and my assistant/girlfriend's preperations for the day we still landed up very cold, very tired and very wet. It was an entirely miserable experience overall, but in a way we really enjoyed ourselves. Even just seeing so many of these beautiful creatures in the one place was rather awesome, and that makes it worthwhile enough for me.
Here's a selection of my shots from the action on Saturday morning.
