Horse in a winter coat

Despite being March (and supposedly springtime) when this was taken, there were still falls of snow yet to come. A probable reason for this horse and it’s companions to be wearing coats.

Broken symmetry

Another shot from the small pine plantation I found a few weeks back. No snow on the ground this time. I’d estimate the plantation is no more than 100m square.

Still water

This is one of those shots that turns out much better than you expected. I took a few shots of the reservoir and reflected trees, but the ones I thought would look best featured some ducks in the middle of the still water. I didn’t really think much about this one until the negatives came back, and it was the best of the bunch.

Horses

It was slightly awkward taking these photos. The horses were on the other side of a stone wall, but there was only a small length of it accessible to me (the rest was blocked by a hedge), and the section I could get to was at the top of a small, but slippery earth bank, so it was difficult to keep the camera steady.

Still, these have come out nice and sharp – mostly due to the sun making an appearance and allowing a snappier shutter speed.

Unfortunately, the horse at the rear was enjoying its lunch and didn’t move position, and my vantage point was such that it wasn’t possible to take any pictures that didn’t have its head hidden by the backside of its buddy.
