  4. Oh my gosh, I love that second photo so much! I love the motion you captured! The color of the horse against the otherwise black and white scene is also really nice. I’m impressed and inspired!

  5. Aubudon Ron-
    These were taken at my parent’s place just outside of Park City yesterday. It was freakin freezing.

    LET’S TALK. The D40 is a FANTASTIC camera and can pick up just as good of images as my D80. It’s all about using the manual modes! Let me know if you have any questions with it. I’m here to help!

    Anytime, I have a fear of horses… I surrounded myself with about 6 of them with this shot. I was sweating bullets!

    Thanks KJ. I just opened up the shutter speed and caught all of the snowflakes in motion as they passed. This can only be done if you have a dark background (i.e. the water to add some contrast)

    BTW, be sure and visit my blog and vote for your favorite animal photo. Not many entries, but they are all adorable!

    Horses are such incredible animals. They are so loving. Just remember not to get behind them in case they decide to kick.

    I used to horseback ride all the time (my Aunt Janie I was named after instilled this in me). I loved it. Cannot anymore because of the arthritis – and I miss it so much. I would like nothing better than to be on one of those beautiful horses riding through all that snow and beauty. Oh, I would cherish it with my heart!
