"Casper is a five month old Daschund with a rare coat known as a dapple. Although strikingly beautiful Casper’s markings are often coupled with terrible health defects," writes Your Shot photographer Cat Race. "It is incredibly dangerous to breed specifically for dapple traits, but luckily for Casper he has a clean bill of health thanks to mixed coated parents. So while we can admire his coat all day it’s super important to remember to avoid trying to engineer such traits."PHOTOGRAPH BY CAT RAC

Kilian Schoenberger Photography "Cows shrouded by fog" seem to be a thing in my shots this year. I had not too many outstanding conditions during the spring weeks, but on this morning I could capture some great scenes. The actual subject was in the opposite direction, but - like in many other cases - I've preferred to hunt the mood and not the spot.
