Sunday Stills


Sunday Stills is a place to hone your photography skills. Each week Ed issues a new “Challenge” that gives us the opportunity to pick up what ever kind of camera we own and try to meet the challenge. This week's challenge was "wildflowers".


I had seen some different flowers in the ditches along our roads, and yes, most are probably classified as weeds, but no matter what they are, they add color to the landscape this time of year. We have had so much rain in the last month, that everything is green and lush. I saddled up Windy and headed out our drive. We didn't have to go far to find what I was looking for. This was one assignment she was going to like! I dismounted and let her start eating at the clover buffet.


As I took pictures of my horse eating in the ditch, the neighbor was bringing in his crop of hay bales across the road. I'm sure he was scratching his head, wondering once again what I was doing on my hands and knees by my horse, and at one time almost under her.


Although driving down the road, I saw prettier flowers, by using the purple clover, it was easy to meet this challenge and still keep with the horse related theme of my blog.
