Jumping Dogs



We went to Bakewell with Andy's aunt and uncle last weekend, and next to the market they wanted to visit, there happened to be a dog show taking place.

It was like nothing I've seen before, so of course we had to go and have a look - and it was a great opportunity to do some photography experiments.

Of course, there were plenty of the usual problems with fast-moving subjects, ending up out of focus or in the wrong place.

In fact, a lot of the time the dogs didn't seem particularly interested in going where their owners would have liked (let alone into a good position for me).

I'd think it must be quite exasperating for the owners, but thankfully no-one seemed to be taking it terribly seriously - dogs and humans alike seemed more interested in having fun.

Great action shots! And a lot of fun for the dogs.

I bet the dog owners would LOVE to have copies of these. You did a great job!

Great pictures - I don't think our bassets would have gone over those jumps!

I agree. Getting action shots of dogs jumping is quite challenging. You've done quite well compared to my own feeble efforts.

Brilliant pics. I wish they had something like that around my neighborhood.

Fantastic pictures, and they all look like they're having a good time at it too:)
