This was a pretty majestic dog. Especially the fur – it seemed to shine in the light. I called the dog over into the direct sunlight, and after petting it for a minute he started to drink from the fountain on the patio. That’s when I got this shot.
Nikon D700, 1/2000th at f2.8, ISO 800 at 40 mm. It’s a pretty shallow depth of field, so I kept close focus on the eyes and shot while he looked over at my brother Marcus sitting next to me.
