A Landseer In The Fall

When Sherman and Leroy passed I thought that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy fall as much. 

There is just something about a brown Newf in the fall surrounded by the rich and beautiful hues of orange, gold, and red.

It was one of my favorite seasons to take photos of them and it’s a time that I will always treasure. 

We didn’t have much of a fall last year in Ohio so I didn’t get many opportunities to capture Odin with the beautiful backdrops of the changing colors. 

I thought that a Landseer would be a little bit of a challenge but this year I’m learning that when you can catch them in the right lighting with the right colors surrounding them, it can be magical. 

I’ve always been partial to the red leaves but surprisingly I’m loving the yellow leaves which brings out his eyes. 

Brown isn’t as clashing as I thought it would be with the black coat and the golden hour is definitely filled with endless opportunities. 

The golden hour, in the morning, just as the sun is rising and in the evening right before the sun sets, is my favorite time to capture some quick snaps. 

And since Fall 2020 has had gorgeous weather, it’s given me the chance to observe the colors that are around us in everyday situations and take advantage of them.

Most of these are taken right in our backyard which is a beautiful backdrop with the trees of the woods surrounding while others are taken on our daily walks.

This one with the yellow leaves is actually a small island in the middle of a side street. 

The red one is just a few steps off a sidewalk.  

I love that their eyes seem to change with the colors.

Odin has definitely proven me wrong and he wears the colors of fall better than I could have imagined. 


Hope you enjoyed! 

p.s. All of my photos are taken on an iPhone and some, not all, are lightly edited in Snapseed.

You have some lovely spring photos of my landseer Jeb with yellow, purple and pink flowers. One good thing: no color clashes with basic black and white. With his duo adapt he can look rather like he is going black tie. When Jeb turned one, I was convinced that he had picked my husband as his favorite. I was still mourning my Berner and Jeb was not into cuddle time anymore. Our golden Virgil joined our family, and suddenly Jeb was mommies boy ???? Jeb came to us when I lost my beloved Bernese Mountain Dog Marshall. We had Berners for many years, but after Marshall left us I told my husband I couldn’t own another Berner at the time. We were leaving for a trip around New Years. Marshall jumped into my Kia and didn’t want to get out. I had to leave him behind: we were traveling to a military base. When we returned, we found a lump on his neck. With a very a couple weeks, he passed away due to lymphoma. I still have the photo of him in my suv asking to go with me. I wish I had taken him and paid for a hotel room. I can’t post the photo but my boy KNEW. Sometimes the goodbyes are especially gut wrenching.

Odin is such a handsome boy! And I love the way you blurred the background in all the shots!
