Running

A day of sticks today. The rooks are flying with twigs in their beaks, nest making. And this dog!

 

The woman running was annoyed with me for taking this. She said she didn't like having her photo taken. She was kind of OK when I said it was the dog I was photographing. Made me feel a bit guilty though. I was a way away with my 200mm lens, which is pretty big, and I was crouched on the path trying to get on an eye line with the dog. I don't know if I'd like someone kneeling down on a path in front of me pointing a 200mm at my feet. A bit intrusive!

 

I sometimes ask people first if I can photograph their dog, but most times you have to be quick and just take the shot before it's gone, which is a bit cheeky. Maybe I should stick with squirrels! Squirrels volunteer 10 seconds for a single peanut, no questions asked.

 

Shot at f/2.8.

 

Made Explore! My first Explore in quite a while!!

 

Actually made #1 on Explore. I think the Explore info has gone though, maybe because I later reduced the image size.
