A free study for me is more or less to show you my best photo of the month. I don't think this will do any better than my other entries of late, but this month my best photo is one that makes me remember the day I shot this. A day filled with small stories that puts a smile on my face when I think of them. This photo is taken right after my good friend Max gave up swan chasing for snow diving, which you can see a result of here.

This almost makes me look forward to winter - almost ;) My dog is getting old but sometimes she'll get crazy in the snow! Great shot - To me it looks like there was some serious rollicking for a moment and then the dog stopped to think abou tit as they tend to do.
