Lone Pony by andycoleborn

Lone Pony

Apparently we had some pretty bad weather today... Can't have been too bad tho as it didn't wake me... Although once up, I did notice a old fair breeze coupled with bright clear skies one minute, dark thunderous clouds and bucket loads of rain the next..

I did intend to go the Bluewater shopping centre but the QEII bridge over the Thames was closed due to high winds so instead headed to Lakeside and a bit of retail therapy... Bought myself two bags and a remote shutter release all for less that 25 notes..

Stopped off at a field on route where the local gypsies keep their old nags and took a few shots... Glad for a bit of cloud action to accompany this lone pony..


Oooo... photo 801..!! Completely missed the big 800 milestone..!
fav!! this is stunning!

Nice sky shot on a nasty day, Andy. I looked out of my window this morning and didn't like what I saw here, so went back to bed!

@cookie123 thanks berndette - I would of liked to have been at the coast today for some dramatic wave crashing action... Went shopping instead tho haha

Wow, I wish only that I could see the horse a bit better. Other than that it's perfect. Great color and drama in the sky and great composition.

Excellent sky and lone pony action.
January 3rd, 2012  
Great colors....! The green and the yellow really compliment each other.
January 3rd, 2012  
wonderful colours - you had a lucky escape by not going to bluewater today as it was full of idiots! we took our son to the lego shop to spend some xmas money that he got and I literally encountered every horrible person in the damn place...

Beautiful photo Andy! I love the colors and how subtle the pony is.

Found this on the PP.....was surprised when I found it was yours......a very different perspective on life. I always feel sorry for those poor old horses, I imagine he was out in all that weather, no shelter or anything. Such a stunning sky and yet another Andy fave for my collection!
