It is Project 52 time again!  I have again joined up with other pet photographers from the Beautiful Beasties Network  to collectively challenge ourselves with a weekly assignment.   This week’s assignment is to capture images from a low angle – ideally lower than eye level on the dog. Good thing my pups are pretty big and I can easily get under them.  We visited beautiful Lake Alpine in the California Sierras at about 7,000 feet and we all had a blast!

Jack is the swimmer and heads out as far as we can throw the stick.  Julie gets wet, but would rather chew her stick or watch Jack.   Yes that is Jack’s big head out in the water behind Julie. You can picture me on a towel on the ground trying to keep my lens dry (unsuccessfully!).

Right before we left, I saw these lovely highlights on Jack’s coat so I closed my aperture  to capture the sun’s rays and just the highlights on Jack’s coat.

Our hike back out brought us through this beautiful field of wildflowers.

It was a magical day!  Don’t forget, this is a blog circle, so follow the links at the bottom of each post to see how other pet photographers got low until you end up back here!  First up is Tracy Sutherland Photography in BC, Canada.  Have fun!

    Sometimes I think you’re like a friend of mine who had twins. I could tell them apart, but only when they were together. So I’m not sure who is in the last picture, but it’s a very regal dog!
