Happy 4th of July! There is rain in these parts this morning. I won’t complain. We just got done haying, so the fields need the moisture. The parties that go with the holiday aren’t my thing. So I’ll take advantage of a down day and get clothes packed for vacation. In less than a week, we will be heading west to ride in the Medicine Bow National Forest in the Cheyenne/Laramie, Wyoming area. This is kind of a bittersweet vacation because my oldest son has decided to forgo the family vacation for his job and detassling corn. Now the thought of leaving a 16-year-old home alone scares the bejeezes out of me, so I’ve enlisted the help of my brother (who wrote the book on teen craziness) and my niece (who is home safely from Iraq), so he won't truly be home alone. More on the vacation in the days to come.
This week’s Sunday Stills challenge is “Frame It”; a photo that is framed by something. I have found that I frequently do try to frame my subject into something natural in the picture. Keeping it horse related, here are my contributions to the challenge.
This picture of Butter and Blue was taken on the trail to Harney Peak in South Dakota.
And this shot was taken in our pasture.
This was taken from our driveway looking out to the west pasture. The maple trees framing Butter and Baby are on the driveway side of the fence.
