I couldnīt help it. I had to post a photo of this funny dog. He is a dachshund and his name is Kasper, not Casper, and he has several strange ideas about how a dog should behave. He hates when people tries ot take his picture so I took loads of pictures of him and he just looked miserable every time. In this picture though, I think he enjoyed the sun so much that he didnīt care what I did.

Another thing that is quite uncommon for a dog is that he loves diving into the sea with his head first. This from a jetty that is almost 2 meters above water. He loves it. Strange dog.

Hope you like the picture. It looks like his nose is really long from this perspective.

In the background you can se a traditional fishing cabin. This type of house was (and still is) used by fishermen to store fishing tools. Now they are more widely used as a general storing shed for all sorts of stuff.

Thanks to Richard Veilleux (lacouette) for pointing out the smiley formed in the wood in the lower part of the picture. I didnīt notice this until he pointed it out to me.

Urban, this is gorgeous. Good compostion, low angle, colours and sharp details.
Nice splash of colour from the sky and red cabin. Compliments the golden colour of Kasper. Very well seen, and taken.

Great close up. I love the expression on the dog's face. Did you see the smiley in the plank on the lower right corner? The eyes, the nose and even the big white smile. Very colorful shot with excellent details.

Really funny, he look very tired, by sun ? good capture, well done.

Lol. i like the face of this dog, a kind of lazy dog, is really funny, also i liked very much your note, is interesting and well redacted. Excelent Work. Keep Going!! =)

very nice composition and perspective! i wish i could be a dog at this moment too... ;-)

What a perspective and what a lazy scene, very, very well done, Urban !

Urban, I'm sorry I missed this, and am glad it showed up in the TL intro page. Priceless picture! As Richard said, the smiley is nice too. But the dog is exceptionally well captured. Thanks for sharing (TFS).
Just to nit-pick: I think you might have cropped more from the top to make the cabin a bit less distracting...

Wonderful! I love Kasper!

I love dogs... Kasper too, it's a very nice picture... I like the quality of hair atthe picture and the black nouse, the floor in wood give also a special contrast with the colour of your friend ;-)
