Interesting Photo of the Day: Dog Experiences Snow for the First Time

What’s more magical, more festive, more innocent than seeing snow for the first time? For Tilly, a Border Collie in Oklahoma, the pure joy of bounding about in the white playground for the first time was a fantastic experience. Here, her owner captures the look of wonder and delight as snow gently falls on Tilly’s face:

Using a Nikon D7000 with Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6, the photographer (who goes by tgibson12) was able to come out with a crisp image, freezing this perfect moment forever. If you look closely (zoom in on Tilly’s eye), you can even see a reflection of the photographer’s friend as he packs a snowball for the dog to chase!

    This is not the best photo in the world but I bet it ranks at the top of photos you will cherish for years if you are the dog’s “owner”. I now only have the photos… after nearly 15 years with one dog and 17 years with the previous dog… wish I had taken more.
