Into The Sun

The Critique:

Vivid contrasts of yellow and green set the stage for this electrifying photograph. I love how the road leads my eye to meet the golden rays of sun. I love how the trees frame the shot and how the colors and hues define depth. Rich details and repetitive shapes add more strength. The light, with it’s spreading rays steals the shot. The rest of the elements are a strong supporting cast – all in nice balance.

What I had learned.

When I see something like this and there’s no place to park, I check behind me – turn on the emergency blinkers and go shoot.

Like Rain On The Mountain -- Longs Peak, Colorado
"Where now are the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing? Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing? Where is the harp on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing? Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing? They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow; The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow. Who shall gather the smoke of the deadwood burning, Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?"
-- J. R. R. Tolkien

The Labrador Retriever, also Labrador, is a type of retriever-gun dog.[8] The Labrador is one of the most popular breeds of dog[9] in the United Kingdom[10] and the United States.[11][12]

A favourite disability assistance breed in many countries, Labradors are frequently trained to aid the blind, those who have autism, to act as a therapy dog and perform screening and detection work for law enforcement and other official agencies.[11] They are prized as sporting and hunting dogs.[13]

A few kennels breeding their ancestors, the St. John's water dog, were in England. At the same time, a combination of the sheep protection policy in Newfoundland and rabies quarantine in the United Kingdom, led to the gradual demise of the St. John's water dog in Canada.[14]

In the 1830s, the 10th Earl of Home and his nephews the 5th Duke of Buccleuch and Lord John Scott,[15][16] had imported progenitors of the breed from Newfoundland to Europe for use as gundogs. Another early advocate of these Newfoundland dogs, or Labrador Retrievers as they later became known, was the 2nd Earl of Malmesbury who bred them for their expertise in waterfowling.[15][16]

During the 1880s, the 3rd Earl of Malmesbury, the 6th Duke of Buccleuch and the 12th Earl of Home collaborated to develop and establish the modern Labrador breed. The dogs Buccleuch Avon and Buccleuch Ned, given by Malmesbury to Buccleuch, were mated with bitches carrying blood from those originally imported by the 5th Duke and the 10th Earl of Home. The offspring are considered to be the ancestors of modern Labradors
