We spent Thanksgiving this year visiting friends in Caldwell Idaho. On Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, I shunned the mobs of shoppers, instead chose to sit out in the freezing (11 degrees F) cold and photograph two gorgeous Samoyeds. Gracie & Pogo
The sun was just rising, which bathed the field in a beautiful golden hue - and lit up Gracie's eyes.
The wind blew slighly, ruffling her fur
Gracie & Pogo explored together. Sniffing the air as it blew across the fields.
Gracie's 'sister' Pogo. I loved the difference in the color of their eyes, and nose. Pogo's nose is brown & her eyes photography much darker.
Their color was striking against the browned grasses
I especially liked the grasses & how they brought an interesting texture to the shots.
A high shrill squeak gets their attention every time!
They didn't stray far from their 'mom' Ann
They adore her.
Sitting at her feet.
Thank you, Ann for letting me photograph your incredible girls.
Their love for you shown brightly in their eyes.
