I am back for a short visit Smile
We looked after friends' farm for a few days. One of our 'duties' was to take Gracie, a white Alsatian, for a long walk every day, which always ended in a swim at the farm dam. Here Nathan and Gracie are taking off to see who would get to the piece of wood I threw in first Smile
V2- Gracie beat Nathan to it
V3 - coming home with the prize
Thank you so much for your kind votes and comments, considering I did not spend any time returning the favour for a long time now.
Have a super Saturday

Super set, great timing in V1. The set clearly shows the typical German Shepherd (Alsatian) enthusiasm for water and swimming. We have two and they love it.

I keep coming back to these images Herman, they are to me what a big part of photography is about.. Recording wonderful real life moments.. This just warms the cockles..it has everything, the amazing scenery in the background, water , and two beings having the time of their life...I love these images to bits..such a real joy to view...

A big fat UA for you.. you left me no choice...Grin

I am delighted to make it '30', Herman, for this beautiful set of images.
I agree with Lynette completely, image making is so much fun if you can include real-life moments.
Sadly, my UA went earlier on today - and now I am sad..Sad
I shall write 100 lines "Thou shalt hang on to your UA until the end of the day"...
