A rare photo of me shot by my friend Sylvie. Ironically we were standing around discussing why people are afraid of horses. This lovely Canadian mare trotted up behind me, shoved me in the back and demanded a snuggle. I of course had to oblige.
I was playing with a friend’s new lens and came up with this on the one sunny spot in the arena. I got lucky, but it reminds me that it really doesn’t matter what equipment you have, just keep shooting.
The original plan was to be riding through the snow with the horses. Quebec…January, you never give it a second thought BUT last night we got a freak rain storm that turned our beautiful field of fresh powder snow into a skating rink. So Valerie, (the human in the shot) said, “let’s head up into the woods”. If you look closely, there’s a bit of snow in the background. All in all we had a great time and M&M (on the left) and Mini-Wheat were a joy to work with. We have three more months to get those snow shots.
