Horses



Sunday, 10-26-08, was taking photos for a website for a new equestrian center. I woke up by 8am to check on the fog, I could not see across the street. This was not looking nearly as promising as I had hoped. Sunny day, the woods, the butterflies, the beach....instead white out.



By the time we got to the parking lot of the location, the fog was lifting, things were looking up. We would just have to deal with the weather. The fog added to the trail images, so I added a bit more to the fog.


The white sky made for some good high key images and to make the horses and riders more of the subject than the location.



The light was fairly even on the horses and riders, but on this section of the California Coast the sun is over the water. This means shooting into the hazy bright white sky if you want the horses running past in the water. Not the best way to see the beach, but then again, it was so foggy you could hardly see the horizon line splitting the ocean and the sky.


All things considered, this was a really fun shoot, with lots of images for the website and a good Sunday Hike!
