Last Friday evening, my family was out at an event, so it was just me and my border collie, Misty. What to do? Photography, of course.

Trying something new, she joined me for a trip out for some sunset photos. Being a rescue dog, I’ve been playing “catch up” on training. When not on a leash, she likes to run (not run, bolt). So I brought an anchor and cable, giving her some freedom to walk around while I took a few photos. She was not as interested in the sky as I was, but did find things off in the distance to watch.

Misty is a good travel companion and will be a great one if I can train her to stay with me without a leash. Who knows, maybe one day she’ll learn to carry my tripod.
