Sunday Stills

This week's photo challenge at Sunday Stills was "Potluck"...anything goes...Ed said to get down and dirty with my camera...hmmmm...I really only got one shot that was "dirty" so to speak.

But, as with all potlucks, there should plenty of different dishes to select from (I couldn't choose just one). So, here are my favorite shots from the week.




We had one frosty morning where I found this
wad of horse hair on the fence covered
in frost.
Used the macro setting and Auto.







This is my "dirty" shot.
Brego was having himself a good
roll...I guess he was getting "down and dirty" not me!
It was cloudy and I just used the Auto setting.






A buckaroo portrait.
Our good friend Gary Rose came to trim
a few horses...he's got great stories to tell.



Head on over here and see who else posted their Potluck Sunday Stills photos this week. You can join in on the fun next week. Ed will post the next challenge this afternoon.

I love frost pictures! All three are good; looks like the buckaroo didn't want his picture taken!

Ed said...

Nice selections, the frost one is fantastic....

Flo said...

Wow, great shots. I love that first one though I'm partial to macro photos.

Mine is up here

I couldn't figure out what that first shot was. Glad you put me out of my misery. I never would have guessed a wad of horse hair. LOL

I've decided to give this Sunday Stills thing a try although I'm not experienced with my new camera, I'm hoping it will get me motivated.

Celeste said...

I wondered what you were going to post for the dirty shot ;) I love the first picture with the ice on the horse hair, you caught it perfectly.

VioletSky said...

That frost on eis great - though thanks for explaining the horsehair! Possibly from Brego having a good scratch?

jane augenstein said...

Oh my.........GREAT shot of the frost on the fence and hair! But i have to be honest, I love the one of Brego having a good roll; ahhhh, bet that felt good! :-)

Paula said...

Good potluck selections! The frost is great and Brego's back-scratching is fun, but I love the Buckaroo portrait. Looks like he's revving up to tell a good story.

Great photos, love the one with the frost!

Heather said...

I looked yesterday but didn't comment. I love the frost pic. That is so unique, plus I'm jealous. We never get frost here so I can't take a pic like that!

Excellent eye you have.

I never thought of frost being that beautiful before. Thanks for opening up my eyes.

Wicked photos!!! So much detail in the frost! And I love the horse rolling....go great to capture them outside of the normal stance (standing, running, etc). :)
