20060228 Pretentious Pony

Ashdown, Berkshire

Walked across this large field to get a picture of these wonderful Highland Ponies.
I expected they may be timid but this clown saw me and trotted over to show off
or maybe see if I had food. He wouldn't stand back for me to get a picture.
So this is the outtake where I'm trying to distract him!

This brings to an end the February B&W PAD challenge. Thanks to Gary for the challenge
I think Feb is the perfect month for it. Can't wait to get back to colour tomorrow
and 1st March seems a good date for it with spring not so far away!

This one really draws you in. Love the perspective. Looks almost like you shot it from your hip. The hat is great.
