WOW Marcie - I love this - the lighting is stunning and I love the colors. Just a gorgeous shot! -K #628350

Marcie A. Fowler 7/2/2004 6:16:01 AM

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. #628368

Darren K. Fisher 7/2/2004 6:20:18 AM

This is simply beautiful. Love the lighting and the warm look it provided here. Your detail and action are so very well captured and you composed this perfectly. #628388

Marcie A. Fowler 7/2/2004 6:22:54 AM

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). #628400

Donna J. Taff 7/2/2004 6:23:50 AM

Beautiful, Marcie!!! #628404

Duane Carter 7/2/2004 6:48:02 AM

Very nice, wonderful light and body language of the horse. I also like your composition choice with the elongated format. Beautiful image, Marcie!! #628486

Bonnie C. Lackey 7/2/2004 6:56:21 AM

Nice job on this, Marcie. Love the feeling of adventure in the posture of Whiskey. #628505

Marcie A. Fowler 7/2/2004 7:02:44 AM

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. #628515

This is a beautiful shot, Marcie! I have been trying to shoot the paints on our farm, and it is very tricky to get the exposure right. Great work! I am enjoying your gallery. You have amazing stills. What lenses are you using? Again, Excellent gallery! #5026216

Bunny Snow 3/4/2013 10:40:58 PM

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.

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.
