as i mentioned in my previous blog, i didn’t want to get all shutter happy on this trip. no following the spray and pray method this time. i wanted every image i captured to mean something to me, remind me of where i was when i captured it, and find art in these moments.
below is a small collection of images captured from this years trip to Kentucky.
a common theme i witnessed from these athletic beings is the extension and stretch these animals can achieve. how magnificent! no matter the sport, these horses display their power so elegantly with their neck reaching out or arched with so much controlled power. its something to behold.
Early Morning Run
sometimes an image can be so colorful it distracts from the subject. i find a lack of color in an image can simplify the image. it doesn’t always work but i think it did on this cold morning on the Keenland track.
love watching these horses get bath. they look so happy to be getting the grooming and yet so annoyed at how us silly humans go about it.
“just not the ears human. not the ears!”
what is it exactly that makes a horse so much fun to photograph? i think its the small details that, when put together, create a stunning picture of what helped write history.
