Dog Photobombs

The vast majority of my nature photos are taken in the nearby national forest during runs and hikes with my dogs.

I simply stop and photograph whatever catches my eye on a given day. Wildflowers are favorites, as are streams, foliage, frost, cairns, and sunlight through trees.

I love taking photos of my dogs on these adventures, and often ask them to pose in natural settings. But I also love taking photos of nature in its natural state, without my dogs. The boys are patient and stay close when I stop to take nature-only photos. Sometimes, though, as they’re occupying their minds and their noses, they wander through the scene I’m trying to capture. If I crouch low to the ground – to get a closeup of a wildflower or a more unusual perspective, for example – they interpret that as an invitation to come see what I’ve found and/or give me a dog kiss. Photobombing ensues.

I used to delete those photos. Then, a few years ago, when it became easier to store digital photos in the cloud, I thought, Why not keep them? They always make me smile.

Here’s an initial sampling of dog photobombs, starring my boys Finn MacCool and Conall, all taken in 2019.

    1. Dear Bear: we’re doing our best to provide you with photos that include some snow. We, like you, always prefer a bit of snow to play on. It’s not possible every outing, but we’ll try. Your pals, Conall and Finn ❤
