2013—Day 327—Golden Golden

I took this shot of Mady late yesterday as the afternoon sun was low in the sky and sunset was about 30 minutes away… the “golden hour” they call it in photography. As Golden Retrievers go, Mady is more coppery than gold but I love how the glow of the sun on her fur makes her a golden golden. We were overlooking Dry Creek which was anything but dry and it would have been nice to show that in the background but because I had the 70-200mm lens on the crop frame D7100, and because I needed to keep hold of Mady’s leash, I couldn’t get far enough away to show the water .
