Winter Pony

By kevan  
Taken last Winter near Brockenhurst in the New Forest, I liked the way the colour of this beautiful mare complemented the frosty conditions and the backlighting from the weak early sun.

Although the place where this was taken is very popular, she obviously wondered what I was doing up and about so early on such a cold morning!

Over-exposed by 1 stop to avoid underexposure from the bright conditions.

Merry Christmas everyone. Thought this one was rather seasonal. Hopefully we'll get a few mornings like this over the holiday season.

classic pose, excellent dof, and the morning frosty colouring completes it. Really good capture!

Nice, you know what would have made it perfect, the horse breathing out creating his own mist

I can't really see how this picture could be improved. The horse is totally complimentary to the conditions and the pose and exposure are spot on. Great shot.

Great angle for the light, really brings out the softness of the shot.

I can see a wildlife calendar screaming for this shot.

Nice shot Kevan.Love the frosty setting and the slight backlighting but what I like most is the pony's upright stance and alert expression.
A very appealing image.
