Shot of my neighbor's horse Whiskey in motion. Did some minor tweaking in PhotoImpact and cloned out the fence wire in the background. Camera was set on Sports mode and the lens was set at 190mm. I just enjoy watching Whiskey and his buddy run through the pasture.

Thanks K. I went out as storm clouds rolled in the other evening to snap just a couple pictures and I got a little carried away. While I was roaming around the horse paddocks Whiskey and his buddy Vanilla came to visit so I've got several shots that will be posted in the future either to the contest or my gallery.

Wow thanks Darren. He is such a beautiful horse that I love to photograph him every change I get!! But he's a curious equine and likes to wind up on my camera lens (LOL).

Thanks so much Duane and Bonnie. Love being able to look out my window or down my driveway and see the horses running. At another point in this same evening Whiskey and his buddy Vanilla had a little race (Whiskey won) but I was on the lawnmower mowing the lawn and didn't have a chance to caputre it.

Exquisite lighting and beautiful capture, Marcie. Your subject matter is lovely as is your work. Look at all the finalists you have, girl and second place gold medal winners as well.

I wish I could join you and get out and capture the light again. Perhaps, some day.

In the mean time, keep on shooting and winning recognition and get lots of weight bearing exercise in the sunshine so you don't end up like me.
