Back Around Another Time
Another year, another kickoff with photos of dogs running through the snow. We do another loop of a trail in the bigger loop of another year, and I hope the dogs are a little better trained and in a little better shape, and I hope I’m a little wiser (and in better shape too).
I try to play with light a little, but I’ll admit to a bit of laziness with camera settings. I might try this or that with ISO or shutter speed, but more often than not, I’ll just trust the camera’s sports setting and spend my energy trying to find the right angle or light or moment and make up for problems with exposure in post-processing.
I still can’t get over the difference in the dogs’ personalities. Comet is just happy to be a good dog and do what he’s asked (in this case, a sit-stay). Jax is happy to work and will hold a good sit-stay too, but he itches to go. He stops panting in order to hear the release command a nanosecond earlier.
