Standing Next To Blossom And Maisie


Rebecca Boone

This was just a lucky catch.  It looks like I've done something fancy with the background or taken her to a photo studio for some Glamour Shots, but it's just Rebecca Boone standing in front of the same black shade cloth from the last couple of posts.

I'm sure there's some science as to why this worked, maybe having to do with how the camera read her gray...or the gray and black combined...or because the sun was shining bright in the field (where the Chocula butt kicking contest was happening ;-) and she was in the shade...but I can't answer that.  I do know that I'll sure try to stage this again sometime!

Here's a short snowy video from this morning.  



The dark lump in the middle of the barn lot is a big pile of frozen horse poop.  I found it in there yesterday and tossed it over the horse fence (barn clean up at its finest ;-).  It was back this morning.  I guess that's a hint that I need to go buy Hank some more bones

Even with the straw bale added last night for a windbreak, poor Hank was covered in snow this morning.  Yes, inside the barn.  We have snow blown in 20 feet from all four sides and three of the sides are closed!  He now has a new bed in a more sheltered corner.  Everyone else seems fine.

Stay warm!

Stunning capture !!! The texture, color , pose are all awesome in one shot!!! Flag this one for competition , calendar, and poster use. Gosh in this cold it's a wonder that anything mechanical including fingers work at all!!

I need orange said...

Love this one, as well as the same sort of monochrome capture in the first shot in the next post..............

I'd be happy to 'shop the stitch lines out of the right side of the image, if, perhaps, you wanted?

Thanks, I need orange :-). It's a pretty picture, but there's more wrong with it (in my mind at least) than just the threads - framing, angle, cropping... I love the colors though and can't wait for a re-do :-D.

Did you fix some baby Maisie pictures for me last year? I've been trying to remember who was so kind to do that (everything was a blur back then :-o) and now I'm wondering if it was you?

This belongs on a calendar. I LOVE it!!

Yep, that sure is a perfect picture. Rebecca Boone and her soft and shiny curls.

Poor Hank:-(.

Wonderful, as always! Hey, I know...how about you take some of our cold, grey, windy rain, and we'll have some of your lovely, white, pretty snow! Stay warm...

What is it with dogs and poo? Great shots..:-)

Such beautiful texture in that photo.
You have birds and bells so even the empty barnyard still has beauty.

BRRR! Right now I'm in brown Lincoln, NE; no snow, 8 degrees on the night I arrived (but warmed up to 50 the next day!). Sounds like it could get nasty before I leave Tuesday; hope I can get home to temperate, green Oregon on time!

I love her nose and mouth area (muzzle?). It looks so soft and the colors are beautiful.
