A boy and his dog in “Followed,” captured by Elena Shumilova (Via Imgur)

In this charming photo by Elena Shumilova, a very large dog follows a very small boy through a sunlit field. Captured during what photographers refer to as “the golden hour”—the first or last hour of sunlight during the day—this photo depicts the warm glow that lends such a special quality to photos taken during this time.

Entitled “Followed,” this photo was taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with a focal length of 135mm at f/2.2, a shutter speed of 1/500 of a second, and an ISO of 200.
