    What a wonderful picture, Tony! They do not even seem uncomfortable, with their legs up to their knees in the snow – just alert and friendly.
    Congratulations on the feature, well-deserved!

  • Thanks Marjolein, no they didn’t seem uncomfortable at all but they kept their eyes on me for sure. I like this photo because it helps tell the story of that day. They never let me get closer than maybe 30 yards ( 27 meters or so??) the four hours I was out there with them and they were always watching. They aren’t used to having human contact it this “Upper Pasture”.

    Hard to pick which one I like better. I think I lean towards this version a bit more. Both fantastic.

  • Thanks Chris and thanks for looking, I’m with you and lean towards this one too. I am always debating color/b&W/toned???? Sometimes it is obvious that color makes the image and it makes it easy ( Thank God) and sometimes it is obvious ( at least to me) that color is a distraction from the image and too often it isn’t so easy. I was introduced to photography with Kodak Tri-X 400 asa film and eventually Plus-X 125asa film so I think I had an ingrained prejudice
    against color until I saw the work of Ernest Haas in color and discovered Kodachrome 25 asa film but I still lean to black and white. Tony

    One can sense their alertness, great tones & composition!

  • Thank You Kay and yes only a small group out of maybe 30 to 40 horses have begun to relax around me, the others are always alert and keep an eye on me. Alert and curious all at the same time is probably most accurate.
