My Irish Setter (Tallow) having fun in the snow

in order to get this shot I had to walk my dog knee deep in the orchard, have him sit and then retrace my steps on the way back. I did this so that when I took the photo you wouldn’t see my footsteps in front of Tallow (my dog). I did this 3 times and then ran out of orchard. This was the best of about 50 shots.

I guess I should have planned ahead and shot at a different angle so that the trees weren’t shown behind him
