Horses in a mostly sunny landscape

A few days ago I found the "local" (NC State Veterinary School) horses grazing in a pasture accessible from public walkways. It was a mostly sunny day, but with upper and lower layers of clouds moving around. I decided to try to portray the three dimensional shapes and overlap of the cloud layers. 

I'm always drawn to patterns in landscapes, so I composed a shot of two horses mirroring each other, framed by lines in the grass and fences.

In a wider view, the blue sky and green grass are "completed" by the red barn - the three primary colors. Actually, the grass is yellow-green, and the sky is, well, sky blue, not pure blue, but it's still a strong combination.

One friendly stallion came closer to look me over, so we exchanged greetings, then each moved on.

  1. The stallion was probably thinking, "Hmmmm, Lunch!"

    1. He was indeed, and I was feeling guilty for not having an apple with me. Poor planning on my part!
