A lone woman with her trusty hound hiking through the woods. Actually she is part of the Gumbo Flats Gold Cup event where hounds show off their tracking skills. Today there are “12 couples” (24 Bassets) in field including Missouri’s Three Creek Basset Pack and Okaw Valley Foot Bassets from Ohio. Awards are given toContinue reading “Out with her trusty hound”
I am working on my skills as a portrait photographer so I combined my interests: landscape photography and Basset Hounds and got this. Dixie is standing on an Adirondack Chair in an area overlooking Chesterfield Valley in St. Louis County. Dixie hates cameras and will not look at me. This was taken with a NikonContinue reading “Dixie’s Portrait”

He usually hunts with a dozen other Basset Hounds and is part of a pack that belongs to Three Creek Bassets, a professional group of hounds that competes nationally. This is actually part of a sportContinue reading “Sochii”

This is one of my favorite recent photos taken while observing these Basset Hounds showing off their tracking skills. When processing the pictures from that day I did not remember any bassets being chased by horses. What was happening was that, while cutting through this pasture, the Bassets were running to join another group ofContinue reading “Bassets on the run”
As a Basset Hound enthusiast I like to spend time with people that share my interest. This group of hounds are bred for tracking and compete nationally, showing off their skills. My wife and I will spend a number of fall and winter Sundays watching them perform at various locations around St. Louis and St.Continue reading “Three Creek Bassets”
This is a photo I took about four years ago in St. Louis’ City Garden, a sculpture park in the downtown area. The critics are my two Basset Hounds, Lolly and Clementine. This park is full of interesting things to photograph. I will be returning later this week, watch here for the results.
Dogs at Peabody Hotel. This was taken with my Nikon 35mm 1.8 lens. This lens allows you to take great photos in low light.
