Superb fun. I wish we could do this in the UK, but we don't have snow that often.

Travel problems overcome with this excellent way of getting about, Malcolm.
Another very attractive winter snow scene from far west.

Thanks for comments. I was out with my daughter's neighbours who train working horses & use sleighs for hauling logs etc & for leisure. Most build their own sleighs, & have a matching pair of horses for these regular winter events. In this case there were eight teams of horses, & out on trails for most of the day.
Fun, but thermals required......

It doesn't look so cold when you have beautiful blue skies as well... not the grey drab blanket we have Sad

Loving these images Malcolm.
Did you find it difficult to get exposure right with snow and sun?
the horses look very fine specimens.
Stunning images.

Thanks for C & Cs
Bit of curves, dodging & burning in post process, eg to get detail on dark horses Kate, & had to desaturate blue tinge in snow.
They like their horses there!
