Iron Ranch Stables

I have passed this horse ranch many times. Today I finally decided to stop in and see if I can take some pictures of these magnificent creatures.

A young woman that keeps her horse,Wilbur, on the ranch gave me permission to take some pictures.  Unfortunately I neglected to get her name.

She stated that Wilbur (brown horse) was a former race horse and he is about 3 years old. The white horse is about 18-20 years old.

 

This next horse Winnie belongs to the owner of the ranch.

 

All of the horses that I met today were very friendly and came right to the fence as I approached.

Come back tomorrow to see more pictures of the horses at Iron Ranch Stables.

And the fire was lit

Last night’s sunset was beautiful.  It looked as if it was on fire.

I drove around until I could find an unobstructed view of the sky. I finally had to just stop or I was going to miss it.

Have you seen the movie “Backdraft”? In the movie it showed how the fire was rolling on the ceiling.  This was my first thought when I saw this sky.

What are your thoughts?

WP Photo Challenge: Inspiration (2)

My Inspiration/My Muse

I stated in yesterday’s post that my grandson Arai is an inspiration for me to take photographs.  Well this morning was no exception.

He was left alone in the living room lounging on the sofa watching kids videos on his Sprout Tablet.  Needless to say within a few minutes he managed to surprise us once again.

Check out “OH NO” and see what he did with all of his clothes on!!

Just a Bench

Here is a before and after look at a bench.  The first one is straight out of camera with no edits applied.  The second one was edited using Snap Seed.

What is your opinion on the black and white version?

Dripping wet

Today here in the mid Atlantic region we are at the beginning of a heat wave according  in to the weatherman.  As I walked outside the humidity hits you smack in the face before the actual heat of 92 degrees (feels like well over 100 degrees) even has a chance to burn you up.

Days like this is when I welcome the weather of Arizona.  Although it was hot outside and you definitely felt it, you could breathe.  There were rarely (if any) days when the humidity was high.

This image represents the sweat that immediately began to drip off my forehead as I ventured out of the safety of my very cool air-conditioned apartment.
