My Old & Best Buddy

He may look sad in this photo but he was anything but. He was spoiled on Christmas and was having a good time out in the fairly mild weather. I think the funny look he was giving me was because I had an old Nikon 300mm F/4.5 (not a small lens) tripod mounted and pointing at him.

As he gets older his energy doesn't seem to wane at all. He has been a wonderful friend and hopefully will continue to for a long time to come. I cannot recommend a pure bred black lab more if you are looking for a smart and loyal friend.

Shadows of Winter

Winter is here although it is still technically fall. These shots were taken along the Alplaus Kill (one of my favorite and most accessible subjects) in Charlton, NY. We won't be in the shadows of winter for long. As long as we don't get as much snow as we have gotten in rain the past few months we might be O.K. here in Upstate, NY.
