Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, April 2014. The roses are blooming!

"Light" ~ A Personal Photo Challenge~121413

Well, since I haven't been out to take any photos for over two weeks now, I went through my archives this morning for this week's Personal Photo Challenge.  I found these...I don't have photos of snow as our mountains only get snow MAYBE December through February.  And, last year there wasn't much snow...But, I do have a LOT of photos from our travels!  :-)  So, here goes:  All of these were taken with my Canon 7D, with natural light.  I actually took the top one through the car windshield as we were returning from a trip to Arizona.  That was the view coming down Interstate 10 into the Coachella Valley on a windy afternoon!  A Personal Photo Challenge for December 14, 2013.  To visit A Personal Photo Challenge (and maybe participate), please go to this link:   http://apersonalphotochallenge.blogspot.com/

Thanks for joining in the challenge fun, Cheryl! I love the reflected light and glow on that first photo. The wind was scattering the dust participles, and it is a wonderful example of backlighting. Delicious colors. I had to chuckle at the second one. Man-made lights are getting an assist of illumination by natural light! And the last photo is lovely, with autumn light bouncing off of golden leaves.

I really like all three of these photos. The sky shot is amazing with all the haze or rain in the clouds. I love the shadows of the leaves on the wall with the lanterns too. Very nice photos!

Not only through the windshield, but hubby was driving 80 mph! YES!
