As you know, it can be a challenge finding spectacular holiday destinations which cater for both dogs and humans, and the challenge is even greater when it comes to holiday destinations involving snow because most Victorian snow fields are located in National Parks and dogs are not allowed. I love watching my dog experience ‘the joy of the snow’, and the resulting photographs are some of my favourites!
What’s so special about dogs in the snow? Well, to begin with, it’s a playground like no other they’ll ever experience - from the crispy crackling crust, to the flying powder, and it brings out the playful puppy personality in every dog. … Then there’s the light - and I can hardly begin to tell you how the glittering snow, and luminous atmosphere adds magical reflections, soft lighting effects and shadows to your photographs whether the sun is shining or not.
