Recent Photographs

Where is the year going?! I cannot believe it is September already and the leaves are already starting to get the first blush of color as fall quickly approaches. I have been so busy lately but all in a good way. Although I haven't progressed very far with my pastels lately I have been staying behind the lense and wanted to share some recent shots.

I had a chance to visit a local farm Monday and take photos of their lovely Friesians and Gypsy Vanners. Although the weather was not in our favor it held out long enough to get a few good ones. My favorites are of their stallion Rohan. Rohan is the second Friesian stallion I have worked with who has been an absolute gentleman and a dream to work with. I went with for of an artistic approach to capturing these images since the unreliable skies were not easy to work with, but the lighting did make for some good B&W shots. Below are some of my favorites.

Here are a few shots of the Friesian mare and one of the Gyspy Mares.
