By Sezz    
I found this horse in a field nr my village this morning while I was out taking pic's in the snow. He looked rather lonely and forlorn but came over to the fence for a stroke and a kind word or two Smile

Thanks as always for your time, your thoughts/comments are very welcome.
Regards - Sarah x

It’s a brave lady who goes out in this weather to do some photography!! With all the snow and ice I decided to work from home today - but not getting much work done I must say!! Excellent view that describes the weather conditions experienced down here in Kent today superbly.

Lovely shot, such detail and the image tells a story here. poor horse outin the cold, it looks so sad. I wish we had snow here in Argyll I'd love to have the opportunity to get out in to the hills and get a shot half as good as this one!

Good work. Did you have to selectively desaturate or is that how the background was?
