Choices!

Yea, that's right - he DUG right in!  Why not?  We all have choices.

Shots like these don't happen all too often when I'm out on western stock shoots.  It usually happens where I lay down in it, attempting to get my shot!  With the 16-35mm at 16mm I'm probably a couple inches from this scene...yes, I can smell it in all it's stink'n glory.  I LOVE this work!

Tech specs 5DMKII, 16-35mm f2.8 L - ISO100, f5.6, 1/500 @16mm

Story behind the shot

I was capturing branding images adjacent to this location (see the lest image) when I saw the puppy eyeing the deliciousness that was left when the cowboys brought the cows in for branding.  The puppy had that..."do I do it" look.  When I saw it, I immediately turned around to watch what was about to go, in...I mean, down.  Of course I WANTED it to happen, but I did not encourage it.  I setup the camera and waited.  Within a few seconds, he went in!  I couldn't help but laugh out loud on this one.

You have to be prepared, and more than that, know your equipment so you're not wasting time.  This all happened within a few seconds.  It was just my choice to see this unfold, turn around and capture it.
