Dogs at Play 1st Place Winner, Tom Lowe, UK
Title of image: “Baxter’s Highland Adventure”
Dog: Baxter, West Highland White Terrier
“As an amateur landscape photographer I’m usually accompanied by Baxter, my West Highland White Terrier, when shooting in the great outdoors. I was finding that he would often sneak in to many of my photos, so instead of leaving him at home or editing him out of the shots I decided to make him the focus within the landscape.
This photograph shows Baxter taking an early morning swim with some ducks on Loch Lomond in the Scottish highlands. To get the shot, I set my camera to continuous shooting mode and held it just a few centimetres from the water’s surface. As he swam towards me I fired the shutter to catch the action. Of the several images I took this was the stand out shot."
