    Horses scare me ... aside from that, I love this picture! The vapor coming from the nose of the center horse is awesome! However, I was wondering how you were able to capture the snow without having huge snow blobs in the forefront of the image? Even when I turn my back to the direction of the snow, I have the hardest time ending up with small pretty flakes.

Thanks very much, Kathleen. I love this picture too. Had so much fun shooting it.

The main thing regarding the snow was that I simply watched my lens a lot. I covered it with a shower cap when I was not shooting, and then wiped it clean often when shooting. Once those flakes get on the lens, they look enormous. I have several other pictures from this shoot to prove it :)

Thanks again!

Wow awesome shot!
I LOVE horses and am the proud owner of one. The picture just captures SO much.
I also have trouble with the snow on my lens, though I was able to get some really good shots the last snow storm we got. But I am not able to up load them to a computer.
Again great shot Jim!

This is a prize winner for sure. It is a picture that you look and look at. An awesome wall picture for a lodge, restaurant, etc.
