Nooooo, I didn’t go back to the orchard today. I’ve just been slowly going through the images I took and picking out the best ones. There are several horses at the farm, but this golden beauty grazing in the field in the afternoon light was clearly my favorite.

“Rapunzel” (Norwegian Fjord Horse at Russell Orchards) Nikon D300, 105mm, F/25, 1/200s, -0.3EV, ISO 640

I have no idea the gender, but to me, she just feels like a girl. For a long time I watched her graze, hoping she would raise her head. She didn’t. 😦

But no bother. I love this shot for its serene, fairytale-like quality where the ending is always a happy one!

Was out doing some errands today and decided to head to Richardson’s Dairy in Middleton to see if I could find anything worth photographing.

Sadly, most of the animals must have been out grazing in the fields, but there were a few calves roaming the small paddock. One seemed particularly sweet on me!

She kept sniffing my camera and licking the cuff of my denim shorts. So, I stroked her head and scratched her neck a bit and when she had enough of me, she joined the others to lay down in the shade (smart girl!)

Was a difficult time of day to be photographing (hot, glaring sun), but I did get this shot of my sweet li’l Bessie!
