Dylan the Lurcher Running in Snow

Snow in the UK, a week before Christmas is a treat. I don't know many dogs that don't enjoy the snow, Dylan for one goes pretty berserk. So with a fresh fall of snow over night, we both wrapped up warm and headed out into the white early morning. Ready for nice long walk along the cliffs, and some photography with my new Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7.

Dylan being super thin haired and very thin skinned really does feel the cold, so I have a number of jackets for him. Today, he can be seen in a all over dog vest that covers his stomach, a thick over sized fleecy jacket and then a standard greyhound fur lined nylon outer jacket. One snug lurcher.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7

This photo I love to bits. Given my hands were numb, my new Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 did a great job of auto focusing on the speeding Dylan. He was running towards me at full speed, he had just appeared behind a bank, but the zoom which was on the maximum 18x on sports mode, did a great job. Given the poor lighting and problematic exposure in general for snow scenes, this is a great photo.

Just love the expression on his face, he always tends to be smiling, especially when he runs at you full speed, with his eyes locked onto you. You just need to be light footed enough to move out of the way.
