Great shot Carolyn! I too thought it was part of the landscape from the smaller picture! My pick of the day!!
Julie #409445

Carol Brill 3/5/2004 1:36:34 PM

I love the skewed perspective in this image, Carolyn (huge dog, tiny sun) and how you used Rocky to frame the sunset, looks like the beginning of a great partnership!! He's definitely earned a commission on this shot! #409453

Carolyn M. Fletcher 3/5/2004 1:56:39 PM

Thanks Murry, Julie and Carol. He's a good "helper".. Always goes with me when I walk. #409493

Penny Steiner 3/5/2004 2:07:23 PM

Carolyn M. Fletcher 4/12/2004 9:03:27 AM

Thanks!! I'm so glad this one made it..Rocky was badly injured this week and was in the hospital for a few days. His eye was almost ripped out. (apparantly a dog fight) He's sewed up and confined to his owner's garage until he gets better. He ain't happy about it either. LOL #476667

Patricia A. Kuniega 4/13/2004 9:12:53 PM

Well when Rocky finds out he is a star it will help him heal up and get ready for a new round of photos, maybe with son Bob. Congrats Carolyn! #481835

Carolyn M. Fletcher 4/14/2004 2:45:29 AM

Every time he gets around Bob, he tries to pee on him, so that's probably out of the question. LOL #481943

I was laying flat on my face trying to get some rocks in my sunset shot, and Rocky (Bob's daddy ) kept getting in my way, so as I was trying to shove him out of the way, I noticed that this might make a pretty good shot. So here it is.
