A distinguished dog surveys icy terrain in this Lens on the Lake winner.
Lewis Clark Herington VI (fondly known as Louie by his family) loves the snow. However, it catches easily in his fluffy fur, so his family was very excited when plowing began in White Bear Lake last winter. “It’s easier for him, and us, to walk on—and to be honest, there are no dog laws that we know of on the lake so he could be off leash and run around a bit,” says Stephanie Herington, owner and photographer of the adventurous and photogenic sheepadoodle.
This photo, titled “Ice Road Fluffer,” won first prize in the Pets category of our Lens on the Lake contest. Herington snapped the shot on her iPhone, after asking her fluffy pup to sit and stay. “As you can see … he is a good boy and listens well,” Herington says. “In the winter, we let his hair grow longer so he always looks adorable and fits the wintery scene well.”
As a photography aficionado, Herington has had numerous photography jobs over the years. Recently, she launched a website to showcase her photography from all over North America. See more of her photography online at voyagenorth.square.site.
