‘The dog lives for the day, the hour, even the moment‘ – Robert Falcon Scott
A lovely sunny day at the height of autumn a few weeks ago, perfect for a little walk over in the nearby park Plascrug, a beautiful little gem of nature right in the heart of Aberystwyth. Usually a great little spot for birdwatching, my hope today was to capture some photographs of Kaiya, our terrier mongrel dog playing in the fallen leaves. Things didn’t immediately go to plan when a patch of muddy ground proved far irresistible for Kaiya to to roll in…
Unfortunately her chosen spot was just a little too close to the stream which runs through the park, and seconds later she had rolled straight over edge of the bank, plunging into the green water a couple of feet below! Luckily she was able to scramble back up onto dry land and was none the worse for wear after her dunking, although a little embarrassed from her mishap.
A little wet and dishevelled, she was still content to pose for a few photos. Mission accomplished, sort of…
Leaving the now rather soggy and smelly dog to dry off in the sunshine, I spent the time instead focusing on a few landscape shots to capture some of the beautiful autumnal colours of the changing seasons.
