Labs Love to Relax on Porch Deck

My Labrador Retrievers love to relax on the porch deck when we sit outside at lunch or in the evening. Here is a pretty photograph of a black Lab and a chocolate Lab enjoying the view on a summer night. The sun was low making the colors vivid and the lighting sharp. My two youngest Labs are Tallulah and Nissa, shown here keeping watch over their territory (as old Lab Eponine sleeps nearby). They are best buddies and almost always do everything together -- sometimes being called "Ike and Mike".

We just spent the weekend doing lots of earth work and had the top edge of our pond reshaped. It is so much nicer now and the tall weeds are gone, so the view is even prettier. We are overlooking Seneca Lake and OtterTail Pond where the Labradors play everyday. This is the heart of the NY Finger Lakes region and is popular wine country. You can shop for t-shirts, greeting cards, posters, mugs and other products with beautiful scenic wine country lake views at my Natural Views Shop. To buy fine art giclee prints of scenic view photography visit my Nature Gallery at

Enjoy your summer evenings with a nice glass of wine and thanks for stopping by to porch-sit with us!
