Day 4 - Reflections

Most of the pond surface is frozen but there's one section that is not. While out walking I caught Dexter 'looking' for the other dog in the pond. Specialists have told us that Dexter is definitely blind. His retinas were never attached and he has cataracts in both eyes. Fortunately, I don't think Dexter realizes this. He runs around and plays like any other dog would do. We've noticed that he reacts to shadows and reflections so perhaps his sight is limited to that. He continues to amaze us and show us what's possible when you don't let your limitations get in the way. An important lesson, especially on more challenging days.

Does Dexter swim? My Cairn Terrier hates the water. Terrific reflection and I like your cool (not warm) toning on this.

Beautiful - and great post-processing. If Dexter could see it, he would approve :-)

Oh, I love this. The photograph itself is beautiful and the post-processing is perfect.

Yes, Julie Dexter does swim but only when the water is warmer.
