2014 Photos (work and play, trials, etc) [ Pic Heavy!! ]

Recommended Posts

2014 was very good to me- had a pup to raise, went to several USBCHA trials (even had some decent runs with Pepper!), and had a fantastic photography year, among numerous other high points. Haven't been terribly active on here in a while but thought I'd share some of my favorite photos from my dog year :)

I'll start out with some working photos from just working and from a small clinic this spring:

 

Peeps!

Hope, the curliest BC I know :)

Just a few of my girls... fall just isn't complete without a game of corn fetch. Just make sure they don't eat it.

My sweet old girl Sasha, still doing great! She turned 12 in September

Can't get enough of this face. She's so cute. Which is good, because it gets her out of trouble...

and just a few of my favorites from the last six months of Kess' 52 Weeks project

And of course last but not least, some trial photos! Hit up several trials this year in Missouri, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, looking forward to the 2015 trial season.


Wisconsin Working Stock Dog Association's Labor Day Weekend SDT had beautiful weather on a beautiful field

Another beautiful field

Those of my Facebook friends here already know that I have pretty much been freaking out about the nursery class at this trial... they had SCOTTIES!!!

15682223774_e8cd368092_z.jpg

 

They're so gorgeous... I love Scottish Blackfaces but I've never actually seen any before this trial. They are beautiful to photograph and I couldn't have asked for a better, more beautiful morning to get some great shots of them

Whew! Thanks for sticking with me- as always, thanks for looking!! If you'd like to see more, check out my Sheepdoggin' album for 2014.

And here's a puppy for your trouble :)

Gorgeous photos! The bubble photo is just amazing. I think I've gone back and looked at it on Flickr quite a few times.

 

As for the sheepdog photos, for some reason, I'm partial to this one. :P Great photos, thanks for sharing!

I love your photos! My husband gave me a new camera for Christmas and someday I aspire to take photos as lovely as yours.

 

Cool! If you ever need any help with it, there are a lot of great photographers here, don't be afraid to ask. Not sure how familiar you are to cameras or what type you got, but Digital Photography School is a great resource regardless of what level you're at, if you're not familiar with the site. Good luck!!

Love your photos, always. You have a great eye and the quality is beautiful. Hope the curly BC is so unusual looking! Never seen a coat like that before.

Great photos! And I loved the gratuitous puppy picture. You don't see brindle tris often.

It's so cool to see the dogs in action while they work. I never get the chance to see such focused dogs. Ours is a (spoiled) pet and while she does get that determined look in her eye when she's playing fetch, there's nothing quite like seeing that focus trained on a flock of sheep!

 

AWESOME photos. I'll be showing these to my husband and informing him that we should move to the country and raise sheep.

Beautiful pictures!! You've captured so many great moments that truly tell a story. It's wonderful to see another curly border collie! I was beginning to think I had one of the only ones!

That BC with the curls must make all the girls die inside for such a high-quality perm!
