I finally had a chance to visit my friend Bill and his wife Pat yesterday, and whenever I visit them, I get to visit the horses as well. The sun, the lens flare, the location of the horses (and my gimpy leg) made photography a bit of a challenge.
Doesn’t the light just add to the beauty of these beautiful animals?
Love this series, LB. Most people see a horse as a whole, and never notice that the mighty animal has a softer side. Lovely!
GIMPY LEG? ( !!! )
That is exactly the message I was trying to send. Thank you for picking up on that, Lynda. And yes … the leg was the point of impact and I’m still a bit slow and gimpy.
Outstanding photos LB, I love the backlighting highlighting the texture of the hair. 😀
Isn’t that fun? I really had to work around the sun spots, but I was determined because of the highlighted hair.
You sure used the light well in your photo’s LB. In fact, back lighting is the preferred situation in people portraits too (less truthy, ha)
I love that I can see her eye lashes and I want to climb on the fence and whisper a little secret into her ear 😀 I’ve never had much luck on a horse, they recognize right away that I’m a greenhorn. But your angelic portraiture of your friend here makes her entirely approachable. I think she’s beautiful. (apologies if she’s a he 😀 )
I loved the eyelashes, too! and the highlighting of all the hair, actually.
And hey … check back tomorrow for my Boomdee post 🙂 I sure hope you will reblog it, Kelly, if you feel comfortable doing so. I can’t wait to share it with my family and friends!!
oh, I can’t wait LB, that’s a great way to start my week 😀 I sure will reblog, thank you. You’re just too nice. I’m so glad you like the T. I had a great time making it. xK
well done LB…this series is beautiful, all the parts make a whole…you worked with the light wonderfully…regardless of a gimpy leg!
Thanks so much, Heather. I really did have to work around some things … so glad you like the result!
Sorry I get so far behind, just not enough computer time to read, research and being a slow typist – well that is the reason – not the excuse. I apologize.
It’s nice to have you visit when ever you can but Please do not ever apologize! Truly 🙂 Have a lovely Thanksgiving holiday. 🙂
nice light 🙂
Thanks Joshi .. it’s all about the light, isn’t it?
My close running partner is an equestrian, and I can’t believe how much it’s affected me. What lovely animals.
Beautiful! You’ve captured the majesty of these gentle creatures. I’m so glad you are out and about.
I am always captivated by your zoomed in perspective. Somehow focusing on a part helps me see the whole image. So I can look at the final image of backlit horsehair, then move back to the first image, and I have a deeper understanding of what I’m seeing.
Your macro is REALLY getting interesting!
