The light is fantastic and I just love the way you have captured this look on the horse, it spell binding. The only thing I would do is crop just a little more so the dark top of the trees dont show, or just clone them out. It would just add to the wonderment of the image by giving no clue to the placement and depth of the image.
Cheers Adam

Thank you so much, everyone. How nice of you to comment. I thought about cloning the trees out, but thought just maybe that expanse of blue needed that bit of "grounding" but maybe not having them there would indeed help the "wonderment" of the image. I will think about doing that. I actually layed on the ground in the rocks to frame his head in the clouds. I got another pretty nice shot of this horse running with sunflowers in his mouth! I think I just might enter that one too someday.

Such beauties, your shot and the horse! Great shot! Me too, re: think it would look even greater with tree tops cloned out.

All of you are so kind! If this photo does not make it farther in this month's contest, I will, clone out those trees and try again.
Thanks so much for your input and compliments.

Beautiful horse. Beautiful photo. Creative idea to get that perspective to have the clouds in the background.
