Lens on the Lake: Barking on Water

First-place winner in Pets category shares her story.

Julie Orloske has been drawn to photography since right after high school. “I have always loved seeing the details of nature or capturing the images as they are unfolding,” Orloske says.

The photo was taken when Orloske joined her friend and her friend’s dog for a walk around White Bear Lake and they stopped at the dog park. “Stella loves to play in the water and was chasing and bringing back a floating toy,” Orloske says. “I love how Stella’s ears are standing straight up with the excitement on her face, waiting for the toy to be thrown again.”
