This beau­ti­ful dog por­trait was up­loaded to our Twit­ter page us­ing the hash­tag #ap­pi­cofthe­week. It was taken by pho­tog­ra­pher Alex Wrigley. He tells us, ‘ Tak­ing a us­able photo of a black dog is no­to­ri­ously dif­fi­cult, but af­ter three years of try­ing and fail­ing I finally de­vel­oped an idea I was con­fi­dent with. Us­ing a large, dark barn as a back­drop on an over­cast day I po­si­tioned Luna in the door­way, un­der­ex­pos­ing to throw the back­drop en­tirely into dark­ness and high­light­ing her fa­cial fea­tures with the nat­u­ral light.’
