11 November 2007

It has been a strange day today. I fed the horses this morning and then felt really bad, lay down and next thing I knew it was 2pm!!! Dont know what was up but I feel better now.

The picture is one I have been working on today for a lady who has ordered a print. The background again was lousy so Larry put him on a graduated blue background after I had cut him out. I am just waiting for the go ahead to print it as an 8"x10" print. So that was most of my afternoon, because by 4pm I had to start thinking about going down the road and feeding the mares and then the horses at home too.

We woke up to rain this morning, go figure, I get motivated to go and shoot photos of the elk and it rained all day, we have had virtually no rain for months!!!! LOL. I am not going to knock it thought it was pretty cold out too which made it miserable. I think we had over an inch by this evening, at 2pm it was sitting at an inch. Maybe tomorrow the weather will co-operate and I will get elk pictures, not sure when they lose their horns so am a bit anxious to get them while they still have them. I intend to speak to the owners first though to get permission to shoot them this time. I always feel strange peering through people's fences LOL like I am a peeping tom!! If they dont have a problem then I might be able to get baby pics when they have their babies in the spring!!! I am not going to have baby horses to shoot so maybe I can shoot baby elk!!

Well that is it for today. Welcome to all my new visitors, it is great to know you all and I will visit you all from time to time although I havent been that reliable lately LOL.

At first I thought that was a halter but then I looked and saw it is a bit. I wonder how many of your visitors know how bits work? Some are a lot more cruel than others as you know.

I really like this horse portrait.

I have been to Strawberry Lane's place and she to mine. Nice work there too.

Oh. We got just over 1.5 inches of cold rain yesterday. Much needed. It was a dark gloomy day. Honestly, we were sitting at the dinner table and I thought it was supper time and said so. My wife laughed as it was about 1:00 p.m. so I guess it was that kind of day here.

Did you ever hear a Queen piping? I posted one today on my brookvilledailyphoto blog.

I odn't know when elk lose their horns either but I'll bet it has to do with mating season.
