Click to preview Trail Tails photo book

Trail Tails chronicles the outdoor adventures of photographer Sarah Ause's pack of canine friends.
Rescued dogs are photographed here celebrating the freedom of life off the leash. They careen across full-color pages in joyous abandon, highlighting not only the animals themselves, but the dazzling landscapes that the American west is revered for.

NOTE: If you'd like to buy this book, I'd prefer you got the updated version, as this one prints a bit dark for my taste (you probably wouldn't even notice it, but I'm a perfectionist and do). You can find that here: Thanks!

I'm not sure what kind of monitor you're looking at, but I assure you, my photos in this book are not out of focus. I do shoot with a shallow depth of field, but that is very different from being out of focus... but hey, that's coming from a full-time professional photographer who has been published by National Geographic (many times). I'm totally open to criticism, but not when it doesn't make sense!

I felt for a winner, there were far too many photos out of focus, but that comes from a retired art and photography teacher.

Foo Fighters has a song For All the Cows that i love. After seeing this book I think they ought to write one For All the Dogs. Nice to see them roam and have fun.
Take a look at my cat books if you like A Cat Abroad on the Streets of Heidelberg, But I Thought I was Mommy's Baby and Feline Fractals Fantasy.
