Teal, my Springer Spaniel and ever the poser. Always ready for her portrait, of which this is one of my favourite efforts. The enthusiasm of this Springer Spaniel will always brighten my darkest day which this image attempts to convey.

Shot taken just outside Norham village, Northumberland, on the Tweed Valley walk with Panasonic Lumix G1, 14-45mm lens (1/250, f/6.3).

Best viewed in large.
