This is a photo of my Border Collie, Daisy, flying into the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. I had actually just purchased the Nikon Z6II the day I took this photo back in April. I went out with my dog just to test how precise the new focus was and to figure out some settings. I honestly didn't want to get into the water because it was 35 degrees out, but I threw my dogs Frisbee with my left hand and she went flying into the freezing cold water. My saying is, if the dog goes into the water, so do I haha! She was having a blast while I was watching her and I noticed the power and intensity she had jumping into the water so I decided to make a very calculated move. After the 1st attempt and making some adjustments, I placed her frisbee in a specific spot on the water, told her to stay, and positioned myself back where I knew I was going to get a stellar photo if she continued to jump like she had been doing. I gave her call command and she flew! I knew I had captured something special right at that moment, but I was completely frozen laying in the water so I didn't really review it in depth until I returned home, and uploaded everything into Lightroom. My eyes filled with tears because what I had captured on camera was something I have been working so hard to achieve ever since I started my photography journey. This photo shows the focus, power, and determination of the border collie breed and the fact that it was my girl in this photo makes it so special to me.
