These girls and their dad were so patient in the cold. I grabbed my new blanket and some hot cocoa at the last minute, and it's a good thing I did! The wind was so strong on top of the mountain, and we kept sinking into the snow. I know at one point I fell in up to my thigh. I don't think we would've lasted long without some way to warm up.
I love how it went from shivering to this. It wasn't my intention to do so many shots with the blanket, but it kept them comfortable and warm, and it ended up working beautifully with the white snow.
I'm glad I won't be the one needing to chose between black and white and color for these two images, because they are equally beautiful in both. It's taken me several minutes just deciding which to post on the blog!
