Snow Blind! (Ride the Light)


Hello friends!


I'm back from vacation and will try to catch up during the coming weeks (hopefully!)


Found this pic while looking through my earlier works... taken a few days before I actually joined Flickr :-)

I remember this moment very well, because the temperature was absolutely freezing that day.

The weather report lists the high & low temps for that day as 1C & -10C (34F & 14F)!


(as for the horses, the riders only 'walked' them and didn't run them during this cold weather, so all seemed fine)


The bright light streamed across the riders and silhouetted them beautifully... while also giving shadows to the little mounds of snow and frozen grass along the ground.

I think the foggy haze was being caused by the ice crystals hanging in the air and shimmering in the bright sunlight.


It was an amazing moment for me to witness and I felt lucky to capture them, riding through the winter light :-)



As always, hope you find something interesting or enjoyable here :-)


Have a wonderful week ahead dear friends!

Wishing you all the best!!!
