Archie at play

Archie at play

This week’s Picture of the Week is Paul Hill’s terrific photograph of his dog Archie. Well caught Archie and Paul! It’s not an easy skill to freeze a dog flying through the water. You have to be well prepared and have the ability to accurately follow and frame your subject, then release the shutter at the right moment. Paul has achieved this admirably and was rewarded with a score of 18 in our last competition.
