Six equestrians arrived at the beach for fun and photos in morning light.

Horseplay

June 2012

The last time we did this (March 2011), we were on the beach in the evening. The riders were backlighted by sunset and, although I got several good images of them, contrast and light were challenging. Silhouettes were simple enough, but I wanted clear views of the horses and riders.

This time we arrived in the morning—and a beautiful morning it was! In general, photography from the south gave more manageable light. Photography from the north offered a simpler background. Either direction offered good reflections on the water of low tide. The only thing left was to compose the photos and capture the moments. The motor drive - and a bit of forethought - made possible many good photographs.

Once again, a special thanks goes to the equestrians. It was a fine morning of fun and photography. Be well!
