I sometimes get on this kick I can't shake. I was in Northern Alberta on a small acreage outside of Grande Prairie when I got this idea for a modern take on Little Red Riding Hood. The January weather is so bleak and the red creates a start contrast with the snow and sky.
My mother's malamute Angel subbed in as the wolf. We had to put a treat in Jessie's sleeve to get her to pay as close attention as she did.
The wind was very cold and strong but it made for beautiful pictures.
When you are out in cold weather it is important to keep track of how your model is doing. Sooner or later skin is going to turn red and chapped. We only stayed out 15 minutes at a time.
I love this last shot because I think it looks strong and beautiful. If only I could have got the dog to cooperate and walk with her. Malamutes do what they want.
