Title of image: ‘Young At Heart’
Dog: Bailee, Labrador Retriever (bitch)
This grey-faced gal had absolutely no concept of her ripening age. Right to the very end of her photo session at Beacon Fell, Bailee leapt and scrambled over logs smiling down at me hopefully for a snack! Although she had slowed down a little more with each grey hair appearing on her soft face, Bailee was as raring for adventure as she had ever been.
I created this portrait in a bright wide angle format to accentuate the pup-like spirit that shone from her. I tucked myself in close as she gleefully watched my lens, capturing every grin - and drop of drool - that she had to give.
