Easter egg??? Not sure what you are talking about, but thanks for the comment anyway.

Thank you for the lovely comments, it was by chance while my husband and I went for a walk down this lake that we met a lovely couple who lived close by, this was their dog, apparently they do this every day. Not one to waste any type of photographic opportunity I started to snap away. This pooch was having the time of its life, not sure how cold the water was but he was loving it. Actually had another photo that I took from our trip for this challenge, but exchanged it for this image. I really wanted to test this phone cameras ability to take action shots. I am most impressed. I took probably over 20 images, every single one of them was sharp as a tac!

Cellphone cameras are making it harder and harder to justify lugging around heavy cameras :)

Yay! Afraid I didn't vote on this entry, since I knew it was yours. I might have to consider the Pixel for my next phone when my Moto G4 dies.

Why is the sky so dark? Is it automatic conversion in this phone? Congrats on the red.


I darkened the sky because I felt it made more impact. Took this shot at 10:58 am in the bright sun, you know what itís like taking photos during this time of the day, theyíre not always the best.

Thanks anyway.

Thanks for the explanation, not sure if us Aussies down under use that term. Never heard it before. Anyway you are hundred percent correct about this phone, I travelled with two other cameras, but I used this phone camera probably even more so, very convenient and so light of course. And of course thank you for the 10 :-)

On my 25th vote out of 40... this is my favorite. It makes me happy. And the fact that it is in such a beautiful setting makes me like it even more. So far, my highest rated photo. Good Luck!
