More Sunsets and a Small "Dakota" Preview

 Tuesday, January 25, 2011

We got such an amazing beach sunset Sunday when I shot my Roller Derby themed portraits,  I can't help but post a couple more! These were taken in Long Beach, CA and you can't really see it, but on the horizon in the distance, right in between the two palm trees, and in between the shipping cranes is the smoke stack of the Queen Mary!

I also mentioned that I took pictures of my friend Brittany with her aging dog Dakota. She has tumors and has been in a lot of pain but in an amazing moment, right at sunset, this old girl got a burst of energy and ran and jumped and played in the sand in a way Brittany has not seen in years. I have sooo many pictures from this shoot to go through still (and tons more Roller Derby ones I want to post too,) but here is just a preview of the amazing Dakota and her burst of engergy.

These are so lovely, and the colors are gorgeous. That one of Dakota playing in the sand is priceless.

Oh,, breathtaking colors, and love the sun flare highlighting Dakota's romp. I love sun flare, which incidentally is part of my post today.

Those are wonderful! I REALLY like the first one! Thanks for linking up to Happy Monday! :)

Hi Jaymi! I love your sunsets but I love Dakota more! I have two senior dogs but they are very active. Animals love the scent of earth, soil, sand, water, etc. and Dakota needs that which is why she was happy! On my sidebar are links to my prolific dogs (they are certified bloggers! haha!)

The colours in that first shot are electric! I loved that picture of Dakota, and had no idea her story. WOw, maybe you could submit that in my JOY photo challenge?
