    Well, this answers my question about the snow……… Go, Tallow; go, Tallow; go, Tallow, go!! Brilliant dog, brilliant shot, brilliant environment. Did you have all that hoarfrost this morning? Magnificent.

  • thank you Sheila. I have been waiting a few years for enough snow to try this shot again. I think we got about 8 inches. We did get the hoarfrost this morning and I wanted to take some shots but my battery was dead and of course I don’t have a spare :-(
    it was beautiful this morning

    Tallow is one sensational looking dog and looks like he enjoys life! Just a great photo of him and his coper-colored coat against the snow really pops and the shine on his coat is evidence of his obvious good health…. the background and the snow flyng through the air around Tallow is just perfect….beautiful dog and beautiful photography.

  • thank you Kat. I can tell you that snow and Irish Setters don’t mix. What a mess :-)

    Awesome capture, Dave! Great to see Tallow – he sure looks like he’s having some great fun! My dog has the same kind of fur so I know what you are saying about the mess……but they do love that snow!
