Last Silhouette Sunday of 2017

Silhouettes of dogs against gorgeous skies combine two of my favorite things: dogs and nature.

I have certain favorite boulders for taking silhouette photos, depending on where the colorful part of the sky is. Shyla is so used to being my model that I simply point to the boulder, and she climbs into position. Then she patiently waits while I take photos from every angle and even wait for the sunset colors to morph toward twilight. She's amazing!
I really thought that we'd never reach this kind of relationship when I first met Shyla. In most ways, she's become the perfect companion for my photography and mountain biking. She's so patient with me during the photography, and I sometimes need to be patient with her during the mountain biking.

It's give and take, from both sides. I love my girl.
