Only a few minutes after capturing yesterday’s image, a golden retriever came onto Riverhead Beach with its owner in tow.  He (or she) walked without hesitation to the water’s edge and into the very cold water of the harbor.  As the golden retriever passed under the light of the slowly setting sun, I captured this frame featuring the dog quite literally bathing in the light of the sun with the lamp posts of the causeway above.

I hope the owner doesn’t mind that I took a bit of creative license in cloning her out of the final image.  I thought the lone dog had more impact than the original leashed version.
