Day 9: Horses in Snow

by John Nelson January. 09, 2010 3235 views

I love Northwest Arkansas for many reasons. One of them is the quick accessibility of city and country landscapes. I often take highway 112 north simply to drive past all the countrysides and farms. It's beautiful.

Within a 1 mile radius of our house, there are dozens of horses. Every day I drive by them, I think, “I need to come photograph them!”, but have never done so.

I took the opportunity today to go shoot some horses around the area. I found one group that was close to the fences. I'm sure I looked crazy and I stood there calling them over, petting them, and trying to brush their hair out of the way to make them more photogenic.

Location: Springdale, AR
Camera: Canon Rebel XTi
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8

Hello John! These are wonderful photos! I love to play around with photography too, especially with live close to my sister's territory! Do you know Ken and Sue Coon? She's an artist in Mountain View and he's a professor in Little Rock..
