Shoot Happens

You Callin' Me A Son Of A Gun, Betty?

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON


This shot was taken at Beaver Creek in the Yukon. I had actually woken up early to photograph the dawn colours on the mountains that stretch across the highway. Even before the snow started turning pink in the early morning rays, I walked around to take some shots of signage and other unusual sights.

The light wasn't the best when I took this shot, very early in the morning, but I simply had to take this shot. I didn't actually have the time to walk across to Buckshot Betty's, so maybe I'll leave that for the next time I travel to the Yukon.

I'm sure the unique name will trigger my memory.

(The Odd Shots concept came from Katney. Say "G'day" to her.)

His daddy was a pistol, he's a son of a gun. Pappy

Shame you didn't have time to go in, not often you get a chance to see a real 'pistol packin' momma'

Lee was just asking me if I thought you had any more Yukon photos and I assured her that you would have enough to engage our curiosity for months...thanks for proving me right
