Sebastião Salgado's Portrait of a Siberian Sled Dog

One of the final trips of his Genesis project. This photograph is from Sebastião Salgado's visit to the Nenets of northern Siberia.  Courtesy of Sebastião Salgado/Amazonas/nbpictures.

The temperature here in England is 0 degrees, but I can't moan after looking at this photo. 


  1. Extraordinary photo (assuming the dog is okay, just icy from a day at work???)

    Never felt zero, never want to!

  2. I know that the animals are used to extreme cold, and even though a fabulous shot, I still feel sorry for the iced up dog.

    I don't envy you the zero temp. I've felt zero three times here in Oregon. It happens often in the mountainous and eastern regions of the state, but is fairly rare in the valley where I live.

    The time I remember most vividly was just after my husband and I had gotten married. We had moved into a duplex, and a cold front came down from Alaska, bringing frigid wind and below zero temperatures. It was so cold that birds landed in our back yard under the fir tree and refused to move, and we had 1/4" of ice on the inside of the windows. Not a very well insulated living arrangement. lol

    Stay warm!
