I've been telling people I meet on assignment that 80 percent of the assignments I shoot I wear snow pants for. Meaning, most days I'm outdoors taking pictures. I think that figure is pretty close to the truth, though it could be closer to 90. Saturday I went north to photograph a biathlon. Cross country skiing plus target shooting equals a wicked good time.

Savannah and Holten (the kids in the photo) each hit 13 of their 15 shots. For comparison I hit 5 out of 10 with a gun that cost two grand more. Someone needs to practice up.
