Amy- Right into my favorites girl. This one along with the other one is a photo of the day, a finalist, and a winner for me. When it comes to horses, you have brought out the most beautiful and breathtaking scenes of them. To be able to see this is a blessing in itself. But the most amazing part is the out of this world camera work and presentations of them. Gorgeous colors, amazing details, I love the water, and then that artistic background, especially the textures and the black edging.
Amazing, beautiful, capture that would bring beauty to any home interior.
Have a wonderful long weekend my friend, be safe, enjoy. #7914794
