Fabulous portrait of an amazing man - he was a client of ours when I was working in Hexham, I'm delighted to see that he's still going strong. Good one of Robin & Jimmy too. Really looking forward to more of these!

outstanding Pro. My relatives in our province are still using our Nat'l Animal w/c is the Carabao or Water Buffalo. No problem for the high price of diesel and gasoline plus air pollution. Still, they can harvest their rice fileds 2x/yr instead of traditional once/yr.

Another fine ''product'' from Scotland here Danny.When I was a boy,I spent many years looking at their backsides,when I delivered the milk in a horse drawn cart !! Had a nice little sideline selling the manure to the allotment owners too !! Where there's muck,there's brass !!
Good take.

What a excellent shot Dan, such a great sight.
The horses are absolutely wonderful Danny, I love Clydesdales as much as they seem to love working.
When I was at school there was a brewery behind me which used Clydsedales and when I worked at the Daily Record there was another brewery who used Clydesdales.

Look forward to more of them in your images Danny.

All the very best my friend,

This is a stunning image and reminds me so much of a painting my father has of a Farmer with his two horses. Definitely "canny" when viewed large.

Superb image Danny, this is really something to treasure - I could imagine that not only Mr. Dodd would hang it over the fireplace!

Excellent Danny - I thought this would look good when you described it but it lloks beter in the flesh (so to speak).
The viewpoint makes the image and the framing of him through the two horses really holds them together. A master class in photography!

Best of the three just shows how a little bit thought behind the camera using a shallow depth of field makes the image really work well.
A really good set of three images Danny

Beautiful horses & so good to see them still working.Lovely dof to bring the main subjects forward from the bg.
Just seems a touch flat for me though,perhaps could do with a slight curves lift..although I notice you haven't converted to sRGB for posting on the web...sometimes the culprit for a loss of colour punch.
Nicely composed with them coming over the brow of a hill.
