Lirhi3, Ushguli, Svaneti, Georgia

Final set from the late-winter festival.

Once the solemnities of prayer for each other were over, the singing and dancing began, snowfall notwithstanding!  I kept my camera around my neck on its strap, covered with a plastic bag, lens hood shielding the lens from the snow - it was almost as cold as the air by now, so little if any snow was melting onto it.  And it performed flawlessly, as it always has in my experience.

"A good time was had by all."
