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 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay.

The horses get a trim today!

The farrier is coming today and all the horses will get a trim before Christmas, so I'll be heading up to the horse ranch.

And, of course, on my first day of winter break (I have 3 weeks off!) I awoke at 3:45 yesterday morning!  NOBODY was on Facebook at that hour, so I pulled some of my photos and watermarked them.  I found, to my horror, that nearly every photo I've put on my Deep Canyon blog is now on Google images!  And, those are copyrighted.  I guess Google is so big that they just DON'T CARE.  PERIOD.  ARGH!  So, now I've watermarked all the newest photos and I've deleted some of the grandkids, since I really don't want the whole world to see them.  Any other ideas/suggestions?

Here's an example of what I'm now doing...I'm basically ruining each photo so that NOBODY will want to use it:

Like I said, does anybody have any ideas or suggestions?  I really don't want these used without my permission...sigh...

i do photography at uni and when I water mark photographs i put the writing on the photograph covering most of it but then make it almost opaque (think that's the right word) but so you can almost see through it but that they can not remove the water mark but you still see the image as a whole! hope that helps!
