XZ-1: portrait of Adèle
This is our dog, Adèle, a mix of perhaps Border Collie, Australian Shepherd, and whatever else was around! She's been with us for the past year, comes from a shelter, and is an absolute charm - she's just a joy to play with and watch.
She's actually near jet black; that golden brown hue is from the setting sun.
I took this picture at sunset, at Lake Carmi VT this summer, and just had to share it - it's my desktop wallpaper and I never tire of looking at it. That was her first "trial run" at camping, and we will definitely repeat the experience!
