    These are actually from the same weekend as the sunrise pictures. The fun we have from sunrise to sunset...

    Bah, sunlight's too harsh.

    But he had even more fun goofing off in the fields

    Making his way through the fields, probably thinking I can't find him...

    How do you get that golden glow?!?! How!!!

    Ok, they're lovely, but I'm consumed by outrage and jealousy ;)

    :rofl1: I'll take that as an immense compliment, so thank you! LOL

    I really just waited for the right timing, when the sunlight was hitting the fields at the right moment. You can clearly see the lighting was waaaay too harsh at first, so we just waited it out. There must have been only 30-45 minutes between the first and last pictures?

    It is meant as a compliment, you are VERY talented!

    Maybe I am blind and do not see this glow in person...I will be trying again soon though!

    Gah, thank you so much!! It probably has a little more to do with luck than anything else, and a LOT of me trying (and failing), but I'll take it :) I'm also finding that where the light is coming from, relative to the subject, can make a big difference. Sometimes I end up turning Trent to face 3 different directions before I can get the lighting I want :p

    To get the glow it also helps to shoot with the lens pointed almost towards the sun but not quite.

    I am always in aww at your photos Equinox, fantastic!

    These are so gorgeous... I love yellow-tinted photos.

    And Trent is incredible. These pictures make me miss Patriot, the GSD we lost last year. Trent looks like a really good dog.

    Trent is so handsome & noble. :) The perfect GSD boy.

    You take amazing pictures, you should be a pro if you aren't!!! You take them from such cool perspectives.
