On The Run

CW. I stopped to take a picture of these horses and the fresh snow on Old Baldy, and when they saw me, they charged! They must have thought I had a pocketful of carrots or something. I sure wish they had been in sunlight.
This one looks better on black.
Great to see them moving

I think they just wanted to star on 365.

Those horses are amazing.
The snow up on the mountains is beautiful Ross,lovely shot as always.

Nicely composed Ross. The fresh snow n the mountains contrasts beautifully with the shadows from the clouds. I might be a bit alarmed if a group of horses charged at me. Was there a fence between you and them?

Sun would have made a difference but this is a wonderful atmospheric shot of a dramatic landscape.

How lucky to find these guys! They probably wanted their picture taken? Lol!

Wonderful capture! Awhile back when I took the shots of those camels, they did the same thing and charged me. It was kinda scary. Love the beautiful scenery in this shot and I LOVE horses!

Beautiful shot.

Sunlight or not, this is a beautiful shot. I love the composition and the setting, especially the pop of white in the snowcapped mountains.

Beautiful shot and lovely capture. Looks like they are coming to greet you!

@megmills Thanks for the fav, Meg. I got lucky on the composition with the single horse on the left.

@peterdegraaff @homeschoolmom @quietpurplehaze @skippysue @mccarth1 @macromover @jannyography @pplutz @soozieqt @dgrynn @madeline515 @falcon11 @kbird61 Thanks, everyone, I was behind a fence, so it was fun watching them run at me. The composition was pure luck, thanks to the horse on the left. By now, many of you will recognize this as a location near my house. It is snowing again, and my lawn is white, so tomorrow might be interesting.

This is beautiful on black. I love romping, galloping horses, how fun to have them running towards you and not away!
posted April 28th, 2014  
nice shot. It looks like you have something for those horses! I hope the snow on the mountains stays around for awhile.

This is incredibility beautiful!!! A fav.
posted April 28th, 2014  
They lined up perfectly for you. Beautiful composition! Glad you were behind a fence when they charged!

What a wonderful shot and beautiful scene. I gather you were on the other side of a fence when you took this photo. They are gorgeous as are the mountains. Wish we could have traveled to Idaho and would have seen snow instead of Summertime. You truly live in a beautiful place. FAV

@leananiemand I appreciate the fav, Leana. The horses' reactions took me by surprise, so I was lucky to get a shot.

@darsphotos Thanks for the fav, Darlene. Yes, there was a fence, and I was really lucky to get this since it took them just seconds to get close.

@sansjuan @libertylady @pflaume Thanks ladies. I took a series of quick photos. This was the first one, then the composition disappeared as they got closer.

Great vista, wonderful with the horses, great composition.

Ross, I like the pastels colors.
posted April 28th, 2014  
How beautiful. Love this capture with the horses running towards you.
posted April 28th, 2014  
this is so great, Ross. A fav!

A duly gorgeous and majestic capture!

@amandal Thank you for the fav, Amanda. It was another fun experience.

@ivan @gosia @anazad511 @moxy @soboy5 Thanks, everyone. This was a surprising and memorable experience.

The horses and their movement toward you is perfect. Sun would have been nice but if you hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't have thought of that as a factor. To me, the horses provide scale to really convey the broad expanse of land and the majesty of the mountains. What a scene!!
posted April 29th, 2014  
this really is beautiful! I really love how you always capture horses... they look so natural and free out here!

Wow!

Just like my landscape shot for ONS. I wasn't ready when they all started coming at me. They must have been used to treats. :)
posted April 30th, 2014  
Wow, look at all of them! I love the wide, open expanse.

@darylo Thanks again for the fav, Daryl. I was lucky to get this. My reflexes are pretty good for an old guy.

@taffy @monkeykid @bobhuegel @cmc1200 Thanks, everyone. Believe me, my reflexes had to kick in for this one. They were fast!

The kind of shot of yours that I love. Fav. Tell me, what does the CW mean at the start of all your narratives?

@seanoneill Thanks for the fav, Sean. CW means "critique welcome". Please refer to this discussion: http://365project.org/discuss/general/21541/thoughtful-criticism-vs-compliments
