    Well spotted DV! I initially thought this pic was probably posed in the snow and that the caption might have involved a bit of poetic license. But on reflection, it's odd that there isn't much depth of field in this pic, compared to most of the other Kerry pics, where everything to the horizon is in focus (well not quite). Then, there aren't any toboggan tracks either. So I'm now leaning towards a studio pic. Regardless, I love it!
