Flickr a Week 35: ‘A Yukon Quest Team’

The dog days of August demand something cooler, and we’ve got the thing with the first of two consecutive snow scenes: self-titled “A Yukon Quest Team” by Arthur T. LaBar. The 1,000-mile (1,600 km) sled dog race goes from Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada to Fairbanks, Alaska, USA. Arthur captured the moment “seen from a bridge on the Steese Highway between the Central and Circle, Alaska, race checkpoints”, using Canon EOS 7D and EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens on Feb. 3, 2020. Vitals: f/7.1, ISO 100, 1/400 sec, 81mm.

The retiree from Birchwood, Wisc. joined Flickr in January 2010. His snow shot takes the week for composition and contrasting elements—sled team’s colors against a mass of white.
