I am zee blue-eyed pony…Am I not beautiful? Am I not fabulous? Am I not conceited? I think I am zee cat’s pajama’s..(which means, really really cool and awesome). Zee girls when they see me, fall in love with me and flutter their eyelashes at me. Zee other boy ponies are beside themselves with jealousy and go pout in the far back of the field. Zee flies do not bother me, and the farmer gives me extra oats..All zat is left to make my life complete is zat you fall in love with me also. Smooches and smooches I send you..
These are some Amish horses that I photographed just about the same time that
I photographed “With His Permission”. These horses are so calm, so unflappable.
Still rummaging through images from previous adventures with the horses and
I found “The Angel Horses”.
Early one morning I decided to head over to the barn to see if I could capture
some good images of the herd. The light had been wonderful for the last week, and
I was kicking myself because I had gotten a late start. The sun was a little higher
in the sky than I would have liked, but by then I was enjoying the ritual of heading
out and getting my “equine” fix.
I spent some time watching the boys up in the front pasture, and then wandered around
the side of the barn. Standing as if they’d been waiting for me to arrive, were these two
beauties. They were soaking up the warm morning sun, standing close to the white barn.
In post-production, I decided to play with the exposure a little because the sun had been so
intense and I liked the over-exposed look it had given the original image.
Regarding the image with the two Angel Horses, let me know if you like the image that
is more over-exposed, or the one showing a little more of the yellow in their manes. Thanks!
