Going home

By jdenman  
Here is one from back in the warmer months last year, a family of little mini ponies heading home along the drovers road. The village almost has as many little ponies around it as sheep, bold little creatures who don't know they are only tiny. There are also Fell ponies, good strong little things who would have been used in some of the old mines in the distant past.

Lovely capture and composition John. The light is so warm and the tones so golden and love the scale - the image of the child accentuates the tinyness of the ponies. A really well-balanced photo.

Just on that point about extra head room John, it's a super image and it wouldn't be too difficult to clone the foliage and add it to an increased canvas size, so you end up with MORE headroom..just a thought! Love the warm lighting on this!
