Something a bit different: the Pointways Hairy Horse Show! Something for the ‘showies’ before the season starts. Thoroughly enjoyed the day! (Facebook ‘Teaser’ album)

Question with 1 note

horsesjumpingcourses said: your photos are stunning!!!!!!! where you live looks so beautiful. I wish I had fields like that to gallop through! best of luck to you(:

Thanks! I’m lucky to be where I am and be able to ride on such places - I love New Zealand. At the same time, I’d love to be somewhere more.. central, with more stuff on around me. Can’t have everything I suppose!

For a bit of fun, went through some of the more ‘difficult shots’ to see what editing had done to them. Shots from when the sun had set, from horrible rain, from what feels like 3km away and from plain horrible lighting are all here (so don’t judge my photography on this post!)

All are shot JPEG with neutral (minimal sharpening, noise reduction etc.) in camera and edited in Lightroom 5.
