Sunday with sighthounds

I´ve been invited to join afternoon walk with sighthounds along the bank of Antwerp canal. The weather was very unpromising, but then in the late afternoon it improved a bit and allowed rather nice photos. On the pictures – greyhound Shiva and barzoi Kouros.

New Season starting

It has been very quiet here recently, but it´s not because I was not doing anything. On the contrary, I´ve been so busy, that I did not have time for updating the news blog. Also, I am recently working on a new, better look for the photography website, with faster loading galleries etc. It takes huge amount of time, so please bear with me a little longer.

However, I need pictures of dogs from all seasons, so I was not laying down relaxing during the Christmas holidays. No, I actually managed to find some victims willing to let me photograph their dogs. In this post, I want to present Czech Mountain dogs. It is Czech national breed, not known very much outside of the country, and its numbers even in Czech republic are small. These dogs are larger than middle sized dogs and they originally served as sledge dogs, but they can also be used as guardians of the house, dog-trekking companions, for canicross or such.
