@lisa v: Thanks, Lisa - this was a wonderful day and as I drove past this magnificent animal - I hit the brakes without so much as a conscious thought. I backed-up the car and grabbed the camera. The horse never gave me a glance as he obviously was focused on more important matters.

willow from Chelsea, United States

Beautiful horse and lovely surroundings. I like the off center placement of the subject with the gentle movement of the tail and mane.

31 Oct 2008 1:40pm

@willow: There were a couple of captures that I got of our horse that had a bit better composition. But the breeze had gone flat so there was no movement of the mane. That movement made this selection an easy one.

Walter from Watkinsville, United States

Everytime I get on my and ride around, I look for that perfect shot. I pass many cows, horses, goats, old homes, haybales, etc. I always wish I had my camera, but two wheels and lots of hills and sweating tell me to keep moving. However, I keep looking. Glad you saw this one and stopped to "take the shot".

@Walter: There are a number of amazing small cameras that fit in snug places and travel well. Leica makes the 'Rolls Royce' of these. Canon and Nikon have excellent pocket sized cameras capable of excellent results. Take a moment to capture that joyous light - you'll be back to speed in no time.

Nice Shot
