During the reenactment of Gold Rush Days in Old Town Sacramento, California, these United States Cavalry Soldiers group together for a rendezvous. This photograph was shot with a Canon XTI equipped with a 300 mm zoom lens.

My life is like a well read book that’s never ending, at least for this moment in time. As I continually add new chapters to my book, I find that my photography plays a big part in it. This is most especially true as my great love and fascination with Mother Naure never wanes. It’s my hope that you, too, will share my joy as the pages in my book of life continue to flip forward! My Very Best, Polly Peacock

    I like this one, too. I’m a Cavalry trooper and we have a very good relationship with the horse-drawn Artillery.

  • Awesome and thank you!!
