Playing ball – Jasper’s action shots

December 29, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

After a very brown Christmas, we finally got our first snowstorm (with actual snow that is likely to stick around) and bout of cold (think frigid) weather. The dogs were thrilled, especially Jasper, Cupcake and Maggie; my little snow shelties.

For Jasper, the best part of fresh snow is that it makes chasing his tennis ball all there fun because he gets to jump in piles of snow, kick up some fresh powder and stick his nose in the snow for fun. Here are a few of the pictures I took yesterday during our ball playing session yesterday. Isn’t he a crazy dog? 🙂

This time I got it! #jasper #Sheltie

    The pictures are fabulous! How do you throw a ball and take such great pix at the same time??!!!

      Thanks Darcy! Honestly? I hold down the shutter button on my iPhone so that it takes continuous pictures as he is leaping for his ball, then I select the ones I like. That, and good lighting and a few edits, is all it takes.

      The biggest thing I do is take lots of pictures. It offers me lots of options. 🙂
