Azaleas, Tree Peonies and more!

Last weekend it was 94 here in Virginia, today it is 55.
It was amazing to see how quickly the leaves and flowers came out when it got that hot for three days. My lilacs opened overnight and might last a little longer now it has cooled off.

Jack Russell Terrier Puppies !


These puppies certainly would win a blue ribbon from me!
You can read more about their breeder at her website














Painting with Light

I read about this somewhere and tried it this weekend. Set your camera on a tripod, start with 30 second exposure and 5.6 fstop. Then walk into the picture and use a flashlight to paint what you want to show up.
Keep moving or you will show up like the first pic










JRT puppies!

Purse Puppies!



The advantages of having a small dog are many. Little food, little poop and best of all very portable!










Today's shoot







Ozzy the German Shorthaired Pointer was a great model for the shoot today.


He just wants to hunt, hunt , hunt!
