During the workshop, we had the opportunity to photograph some of the exquisite horses that make Kentucky a horse lover’s paradise. I also was blessed to go out a few evenings after the workshop with my wonderful friend Shirley, and spend some time hanging out with herds of mares and foals. They are all so friendly and inquisitive, it was a treat to spend time with them!
Do you just love the fuzzy ears of the one above?
Photographers Notes: On my evening photo outings with Shirley, I experimented a lot with using my 85mm L lens at f1.2. It’s not a standard focal length for horses, but I like the results, and really love the almost 3D effect that f1.2 creates in a photo.

We visited one of the barns during naptime. There’s was lots of lounging, and even some snoring going on. 🙂
