Saddlebreds at Sunset


"He is pure air and fire; and the dull elements of earth and water never appear in
him, but only in patient stillness while his rider mounts him: he is indeed a horse:
and all other jades you may call beasts."

~William Shakespeare. King Henry V




After the rains we were gifted with a dramatic sunset. These are some of the coolest photos I think I've ever taken. If you're wondering, I have a Canon G10. I
I don't have the room to put all my sunset photos here so I think I'll start a flickr page for them soon!






Those white dots on the image are splashing mud. I was covered in it when I got home! Most photos I took without a flash but I turned it on for this photo to see what would happen.







One Hackney for good measure...
