Red Cow

Red Cow

 

The old red cow naps in the sun, possibly dreaming of the day when her calf will finally be born. I liked the out of focus trees as a framing device. They sort of lead the eyes up a path to the subject.

Grey Horse Portrait

Grey Horse Portrait

 

There are some times when you just make a connection with an animal. In this case, a horse looks you in the eye and acknowledges you. All I can do is take it’s picture and capture the moment.

Four Horse Power

This four horse team of greys had two that were nearly white and two darker horses. This team was waiting patiently in line to parade the cultivator and packer in front of the grandstands. Taken at the annual Reunion at Pioneer Acres in Irricana, Alberta.

The Eyes Have It

Hank Again

“The eyes are the window to your soul” – William Shakespeare.

Our friend’s dog, Hank is the subject here. He’s very attentive and wanted to know what I was doing a all times. I don’t know if it was me or the funny noises coming from the thing that I kept putting in front of my face. I thought that he had an expressive face that epitomised watch dogs everywhere.

I shot wide open at f/2.8 with my 80-200mm zoomed right out to 200, for the shallowest depth of field. I wanted the background blurred, but nearly missed with the nose out of focus. Having the eyes sharp was the most important to me and makes the image work.
