Finalist - November 2009
*Digital Darkroom*

Composite of two images, both taken yesterday, 20 November 2009.
My beloved dog Silas was looking out the door watching the kids leave for school when I captured him, then later in the afternoon I shot the road/farm image while out and about in the local countryside.
