The theme for this week's "Perceptive Perspective" is "Outdoors". It has rained a lot and has been really hot and steamy. The haze in the background in the photo above shows how hot it has been - a typical southern late-May afternoon! I love how the dirt road and fence winds its way through to the trees. I had a hard time deciding which one to submit for the challenge as I really like these first two. The mare and foal photo lovingly depicts how her neck protects her baby and that "motherliness" is what I was trying to capture with the perspective I used.
Hmm... I submitted the first one as I think it speaks more to the theme of "Outdoors".
I also adore this one:
A few weeks ago I mentioned we GAVE UP our house cleaning lady (I haven't been without one in YEARS) so we could lease two ponies. So far, it seems to be a great swap and I really don't mind cleaning up a bit of horse dodo now and then. The photos below are a few snapshots from today.
