Cool Butts

I thought this was a funny sight – just a guys hand with a hose cooling off these two polo ponies after they were done with their match.


 


If you didn’t know this already each polo player has a set of 4 horses to be used in a match which consists of 4 chukkas or quarters.  The horses get tired by the end of their chukka so they need to get swapped out for a replacement.  It’s definitely not an economical sport.

Cattails on a Frosty Morning

I found these cattails (along with the machine) while out for a photo-drive this morning.  I really like the colors and the amazing lighting.

Grand Prismatic Spring

If you are ever visiting Yellowstone National Park you will likely see the Grand Prismatic Spring.  It must be one of the easiest things to get a good picture of.  God created the amazing artwork and you just have to take a picture of it.

Otis the Goatis – Portrait of a Melancholy Ungulate

I have rarely been able to take a good portrait style photo of a person.  I don’t seem to be able to get the subject to relax and it often ends being a little awkward.  Not awkward like Ralph Eugene Meatyard’s portraits, but you get the idea.  This (sad to say) is probably my best “portrait” that I have taken.  It’s something that I would like to work on.

Crosspoles

This is a photograph of a horse rounding the turn setting up for jumping a set of crosspoles.  I like this one because of the basically monochrome browns of the horses hooves and the sand contrasting against the freshly painted bright white and blue poles.
