Our thoroughbred friends are having a debate on the Eclipse Award Winning photo that you can see here. A good deal of bloggers do not like it.
Dana at Green But Game has a look at twenty other photos she thinks might be as worthy as this one. Check that out if you are into horse photography; there are some beautiful pictures there, and I agree with Dana that the Casino Drive picture is great.
I am in the minority I guess, but I like the winning picture. I do see everyone's point about one like it winning before.
It got me thinking that I get pictures sent to me from a friend who (along with his daughter) dabbles with photography and loves the horses. Some of their pictures are flat-out amazing. They are often seen at the rail at Mohawk or Flamboro clicking away. Here is a sample from my hard-drive that you might like. You can click them to enlarge.
Here is winter in Southern Ontario, with two fellas with their coats on.
This is an awesome picture of one of their horses who passed on this year. He had a good life. How could you not with that view?
This is a serendipitous look at one of our stables fella's warming up before the Confederation Cup. Notice the sun off the bridle? That's so cool.
A weanling wondering what the future will bring.
I am not much of a photographer and really enjoy people who have a knack for it. I am a sucker for horse pictures as well. There is something elegant and innocent about these animals that really tends to come across in a picture. Truly worth a thousand words.
