I wanted an overhead shot of this sort of elaborate poles setup. It is less basic than a lot of poles setups and I know it is an easy one to screw up. The cool thing about the middle element is I have seen it (and used it) for both trotting and cantering. I so love versatile patterns!
I also couldn't resist doing a photo with a blurred out background. Even though I almost always lose some detail on the horse, tack or doll. I think I am missing a bit of ear on this. But I still really enjoy these pics.
After my photo shoot for Mayhem on Sunday I have replaced a good chunk of the photo I had for him. I have I think 6 or 7 more I need to redo to have replacements for everything. I was kind of planning on doing some this weekend, since it was supposed to be above freezing and sunny on Sunday, but the weather shifted and now that is not the case. Oh well, I have a lot of time to try to catch good weather and get some new pics. For now I at least have a handful of new ones to enjoy!
