"Shan-Tree": Photographs Of A Dog In The Woods

in photography •  12 days ago

Since I've not blogged about Shanti for a while, she's been nagging me in her cheeky canine manner and I have given in :). She picked a set of photos from earlier in the summer, when the two of us had gone for a walk in the woods. I hadn't had my camera for very long at this point and we set off with it slung around my neck. I was still learning what was what with regard to settings and shutter speeds and most of the shots I took, although well intentioned, were not really presentable. It was still early days for Barge.

We walked for an hour or so, encountering light & shade, running water and dogs who ran. Nothing dramatic for a 20-month old German Shepherd who is out with the DJ (her human and a dogwalker by trade) for between 2-4 hours per day, everyday.

A track and a trail to sniff
as light and shade drift
into the woods.

tunnels, a Rhododendron forest to see
"I'm off", sez detective Shanti.
