Dirty little secret. I went out last weekend with the same combo in better shooting light and didn't come back with a single pic. The e-3 holds two cards. I had less than half that number.

This is where I went. Its just a few miles from home and is my favorite macro shooting site in warmer weather.



Rum before he got to be too much of a mess.



Dox working at getting messy.



Rev beat him to it!!



Not much green here. Certainly no floral shots to be had.



An old bit of dam hardware put out of service a couple years ago when they knocked a hole in the small dam. Good thing as far as I was concerned. If a dog got sucked into the inlet, there was nothing I could do to help him.



Dox is still working on getting muddy.



Ok, ok... I guess i'll consider you muddy.



About the only green I saw. Moss on a deadfall.

Hah! When I come home from work and let my dogs out, if the weather is bad they look like that also. Problem is, they want to come back in and jump all over me to say hello, but I still have my good clothes on. Mud doesn't work so well on those clothes...

That puppy had one good time. Even dirty, he is quite good-looking.

Love your dog pics, Greg. Good to see Rum and Rev in good form, especially after the history they both have. You have to love 'em a lot.

Thanks all for taking the time to respond.

First, it nice to get my butt out of the house and not have a foot of snow to trudge through. Now I just got to work myself into better physical condition. I suppose it was something like a two mile hike and I'm a bit sore today.

Second, I love seeing these dogs in their element. There is nothing they would rather do than rip around in a place like this, and I'll admit there's nothing I'd rather do than watch them.

Thanks again,

Hi Northern Greg:

As usual, the dog shots are great - the dogs expressions are classic.
But you never show a picture of how much mud you got on yourself during these outings.

I'm usually ok, as long as I can remain upright.

I wear a set of 14" muck boots and water only went over the top once on this trip when I was trying to get across a drainage ditch so I could take a different route back to the parking lot.

Most of the mud I get into is from the dogs themselves.

Dog cleanup is generally limited to a few water retreives and letting the clean water do its job.
