The Light Before the Storm

Posted in Horses, Nature, Photography by leahyetter on November 10, 2014

The wind blew all day yesterday. I mean it howled (still is today, but with snow circling as well).
So we decided to go down and check on the cows and horses and give them a little cake.

The light was stunning! The sunsets and sunrises have been spectacular these last couple of weeks.

I think I’ll call this one The Gray Ghost. He just wouldn’t stand still for his portrait!
Shooting in very low light is always tough and I had my old 40D with me. These shots are quite grainy but I think it gives them even more character. 🙂
Maybe I’ll have some snow reports for you tomorrow. The weather is so weird right now. Cheers!

    I love the horses. We also have horses. I see that the wind is beginning to pick up here too and I sure hope we don’t see the snow.

      Thanks Betty! Tilda does NOT like the cold. I have her bed by the fire with a heating pad on it. Poor 17 year old beautiful girl.

    I like the second horse. The angle, the colors in the sky and the horse positions made the difference.

    Wow, just stunning. I want to teleport there right now. I think the Grey Ghost is my favorite (my horse NEVER stood still for pictures 🙂 )
