The Apple of His Eye by Penny Kittel

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This Is Rusty, reflected in his eye is my beautiful Mum :) He belongs to her and they have quite a special bond, even though I compete on him at campdrafts. we are all quite close.

I Took this at Nanango Campdraft while still in the saddle waiting for my turn, I’d taken a few snaps while waiting and I couldn’t resist the opportunity the reflection presented :)

Taken with a 12mp DSLR Pentax k-x, only post production was brightness/contrast (using blackwhite points) and I removed the slight cold blue sheen the photo had to better reflect the colour of the day.
Nanango, QLD, Australia.

Adventures of a creative, curious country chick, with a few horses, lazy dog and insane cat in tow! Living the dream in rural Australia, my photos focus on the outback, horses, and the rural way of life… oh and a few pretty flowers along the way!
