Hi everyone!
This is my brother in law, who is a rancher/cowboy! He loves his animals - it is plain to see when you watch him interact with them.
We had the pleasure of spending some time at the ranch this summer. The evening light was beautiful, and the horses were quite a long distance away in the pasture. We tried unsuccessfully to call them, so we asked Don to call them. He got a pail of oats, called, and banged on the side of the pail a few times. He brought them right over to the fence where the paparazzi was waiting, all of us with our cameras :)
I have more shots when they were close by, but I kind of liked this one, where Don is walking away, with the horse close behind.
Just cropped a little.

Hi Trudy,
Superb warm lighting in this shot of the cowboy leading the horses in their place.
A very sharp image and a fancy panoramic frame to enhance.
Good to see you back.

Hey stranger! Nice shot, hope things are going well for you. See yah.


The warm lighting of this end of the day is really nice, you have taken a lovely moment that tells a story.
The panoramic format is a great choice.
Glad to see you back.

A special moment to capture this one, the golden light across the scene is hypnotic.


Ciao Trudy, lovely composition with beautiful horses, wonderful warm colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hi Trudy, nothing beats morning or late afternoon for a good light.I dont think theres a well cared for horse alive that doesnt know what a rattling bucket means..Fiona
