Sharing a photo: Cowboy

Barry the Cowboy & Jesse the horse

I shot this a week or so ago just outside Vancouver on a ranch.

You can’t tell from this picture, but it is actually snowing here. I froze my buns of waiting for this beautiful light. I wanted to use a strobe in this shot, but my batteries died so I had to shoot au natural. I also couldn’t manage to put the lens hood on because my fingers were frozen solid. Hence the crazy lens flare. I like it though. I might try to PS it out, see if it looks better without.

I loved being out in this beautiful landscape with these majestic animals & rugged Barry the cowboy of course!

    I don’t think a lens hood would offer much protection from considering you’re shooting into the sun. Leavin it in, it looks great in context with the rest of the image.

    If only it was possible to feel the cold you felt that would be great :)(throught the picture I mean)
    Great shot. Have you taken photos of the horse alone ?
