15 shots taken at Buston Links between Almouth and Amble in Northumberland on January 15th last. This has to be the dogs' favourite place in their whole wide world, for here there are miles of sparsely populated, unspoiled beaches and plenty of driftwood to chase into the sea.

As you can see from these shots, the freezing temperatures did not trouble them one jot, and they had an absolutely wonderful time. The other star of the show, Garrath (stick chucker in chief) kept warm by throwing and retrieving the driftwood objects of desire. I on the other hand, lost the power of speech because my lips went numb, to the eternal gratitude of Garrath no doubt, but my camera fingers kept on working.

This time we were blessed with the most gorgeous, low, golden light that showed off the dogs to perfection. If there is a God, she is a keen photographer, and she set up this beach studio just for our benefit on that day.

Thanks for looking and I hope these shots give you some of the joy that we experienced on that wonderful day on the beach.

What a wonderful set of images, Lynne, and a glorious place for walking the woofers. I love all of these, some super reflections into the wet sand. Bet there was an awful smell of wet dog in the car driving home, though Wink Carol
