About the Image(s)

This is a photo taken years ago of our Golden Retriever, Trixie! She loved the snow! My daughter was throwing snowballs to her and I happened to catch this shot! It was always a favorite photo of mine. Unfortunately, I do not have any meta data on this photo. This was scanned from a print. I do know it was taken with a Nikon Coolpix...one of the first ones to come out.
I did a few things in Snapseed...cropped, added a frame and slightly sharpened it.

Well caught action shot!! I know how difficult it is to get these shots having tried it with my dog catching her ball. Harder when you have to throw the ball and take photo yourself!!
Unfortunately it seems to have lost some of it's quality with the scan and years!! It seems to be sharp and I like the head on shot as well. Split second timing. Slightly later I think it would not have had the same impact.
Shame not got all her hind legs in the frame but a great shot nonetheless. Well done.

What a fun shot. I really thought it to be a Grizzly Bear. So well captured, and timing perfect. I like it. How fun is that!   Posted: 01/02/2021 11:27:30

Nicely caught action with the blob of snow! Seems like animals love to play with snow as much as we do as humans. Good timing.   Posted: 01/24/2021 23:20:40
