Great capture! Voted Horsing Around.

Same photographer See all

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken at a friends horse ranch in Silt, Colorado
Time
Shortly after dawn
Lighting
The sun was a about to rise over the mountains, creating a warm even light.
Equipment
Canon XSI, 27mm lens, shot at f.6, 1/124, ISO 200. I used the corral fence to steady the camera.
Inspiration
The position of the two horses feeding, the early morning light and mountain backdrop.
Editing
I used Photoshop Elements to crop and enhance the lighting and colors.
In my camera bag
Currently I use a Canon 60D with 18-200mm lens. I also have a smaller, CanonSX 510 which is easier to carry on hikes etc.
Feedback
Early morning light is wonderful and well worth crawling out of bed. Use a tripod when available and watchful of excessive shadows.
