Sunday 20th February 2005 - Day 64

Up well before dawn this morning to try and get a sunrise. This didnt quite work out, as there was the usual bit of cloud hanging right where the sun came up, but I do have something to post :)

Walking back to the car, I went through a group of about 20 Dartmoor ponies, all grazing. This one, was very inquisitive, maybe it wondered if I had some food for it. Sadly for it, no I didn't.

Back indoors now and nice and warm lol.

A couple more pony photos

And some sunrise photos

And yes, it is what you think it is lol

other sizes: small medium large

They sure look funny! I mean all these... are they horses?

Oh wow! This is absolutely stunning. This would make such a beautiful poster. The colours are magnificent.

Lee this is a remarkable shot. The combination of soft lighting, soft mane, and wide angle (but in portrait format) gives this a refreshingly new look. Beautiful colors (err, colours for you Brits)

Nice close-up of the pony. You are lucky to live in such a beautiful area.

This is lovely, nice soft lighting on the pony.

Aww, he's lovely! you hae to go back with some polos for him!
Guest 20-Feb-2005 21:56
Oh, he is beautiful ... the sky in the background makes this image so special!
Ann LT20-Feb-2005 20:29
I think you got excellent result. I like the wide angle shot of the pony.
Donna Lear20-Feb-2005 18:08
Nice shot of the pony. The warm lighting, the fuzziness of his coat, the bit of mane hanging in his eyes ... all very appealing. The closeness reminds me of the horse shot I did recently. I felt bad enough about not bringing food that I've been carrying a bag of carrots in the trunk of my car just in case I spot the horses close to the fence line again. lol

Lee : I agree with Antonis, the wide angle works very well with the sugject, a great result
Antonis Sarantos20-Feb-2005 17:16
Very beautiful image, great colours and wide angle composition!

Nice pony shot with a hint of the sky behind it. I got up before dawn also, and accomplishing nothing after three hours went back to be bed. Sorry now.

Funny perspective on this one since he's so close to the lens :) You still were able to capture some pretty color in the sky. You are dedicated to get out there so early on a weekend!
