Terrifying/awesome photographs of dogs underwater

Pin it

What's that? You thought pet photography was terminally kitsch? Think again, mortal. Because pet photographer Seth Casteel's underwater shots of dogs diving into swimming pools are either surreal, fascinating, or terrifying, depending on your perspective. I don't know if it's the insane single-mindedness gleaming in the dogs' eyes as they pursue their felted quarry, or the way the water flaps back their lips to reveal a slavering mass of plunging teeth, but either way it feels like Falkor the luckdragon is bearing down on you at full tilt.

For more check out Casteel's website and if that's still having technical problems there's a Facebook gallery of the images as well.

You are going to be so glad you're not a tennis ball. Which you should be thankful for anyway, really.
