    Hello everyone. I just thought I'd throw up a few pics I shot this past Feb. I posted the goats in the other thread, but I'll include them here too I suppose. Please enjoy.

    Very nice. So many times I wish I lived closer to the West. Where are the goats that you guys are photographing? I don't remember seeing the classic Snake River shot with snow before. I like it.

    Thank you very much for the compliments guys, I appreciate it.

    Len -- these particular goats were in Snake River Canyon, southwest of Jackson, WY. I was using a Canon 30D with 300mm f/2.8L Image Stab. lens + 1.4x TC.
