Camera Critters - Horses in the Snow
Our route to church happens to be through some of this farmland. One of the farms includes a fenced-in pasture right up next to the road. We enjoy seeing the horses as they graze. Usually they are in the farthest corner from the road, up near the gate that must lead to their barn.
Often I've thought I might come by on a day when I'm not hurrying to get to service and photograph them. But I never did. However, one very snowy Sunday afternoon in January, we left early to give ourselves extra driving time. As it turns out the roads were not too treacherous and we had time to stop and watch the horses as the snow continued to fall. (And if you've been reading this blog, you know I've started carrying my camera everywhere I go.)
The shots aren't very clear because of all the heavy snowflakes, but I rather like the effect.
