Poppy joined our family in January. She was a rescue dog from Many Tears and this shot was taken on our first trip to Southgate and along the cliffs. The original idea was to shoot the sunset and not involve anyone or the dog. However, this was a grab shot of Poppy and Jude as a silhouette against the setting sun.
There are in fact two shots of this image. The first with Poppy’s tail down and this one where her tail is up – a minor thing that had a massive impact on the shot. This image was entered into the Many Tears Photography Competition 2014 and was chosen as the overall winner.
This image has been shared on various Facebook groups since the competition and the feedback to it has been incredible.
