Sunday Stills

This week's Sunday Stills Challenge was shooting up and shooting down...and we're talking about your camera angle here!

I had a lot of problem getting my imagination working on this one...so this is all I could come up with. Hopefully I'll get some future reference ideas from others...you can view their Ups and Downs for this week here.




Looking down on Colt and his head is hanging
over a a small draw that is going
down toward the right. There was too much
shade in the draw (yes, that's snow in the draw).
I didn't know how to
set the camera to pick up better color. It almost looks
like I made it into a black & white.




This is some beautiful first morning light.
Coyote was coming off the hill for breakfast.

Great shots, shooting in the shade is a pain in the.... even though it ligh try using the flash, this may fill in come color. Did you get the pic of the Tundra express?

The pictures of the horses are wonderful...I went horseback riding today and was thinking of all my wonderful blogger friends who do that kind of stuff everyday. :)

Those are great!!!! You can try using the flash but sometimes that doesn't work. Love the one of Coyote coming off the mountain!!

I had issues with this one too. Couldn't think of anything to do! But I think you did great!

I like the quality of light in the first pic. It really shows of Colt and then angle from horseback. The shot of Coyote is good too - he blends in well.

Good job on both shots! Love the colour in the second one, and the view from the best seat in the house on the first one.

Made me laugh seeing Coyote looking like the canine version of a coyote peeking from the bushes. hehe
Colt's ears are so darn cute!
