Winner, Henry Bartlett Memorial People’s Choice Award

Highly Commended

winter's morning - teneriffe dog park - a4

Most days I go to dog park, early, with Zozo.

In winter it is quite dark, the sun doesn’t hit the grass until late morning.

I love the dogs, the people, and the trees –  equally I think.
