A recent drive through Plainfield had me using a long delay on the wipers as a high-country drizzle thickened the air.
But thick air means a saturation of colors, and I had my photographer’s eye out for something to shoot.
I passed a pasture with horses set against an angry black sky, and thought that would make a nice image. But when I pulled over and got out to shoot, the horses came over to greet me.
Oh well, no majestic white horse set against the dark sky, just a close-up of this lovely girl:
She was just diggin’ life out there in the tasty greens, and fairly ignored me as I lay in the wet grass to get this shot.
That’s from Gizmo, at perhaps twenty feet. I was expecting to take shots of distant horses, but they had other ideas.
