It seems just the other day when I was whinging about how hot it was ...
Back then, it was tough to take nice photos of the horses because whenever they were outside, they were shrouded in fly sheets and face masks.
Now, all of a sudden, we're almost in winter and, while their faces are visible when they're out in the paddocks, their bodies are muffled in thick rain-proof sheets ... not conducive to showing them off at their best!
Speaking of rain, last Saturday we had a bit of a deluge which left the most significant snow yet, this season, on the mountain peaks around us:
So, yes, this is another excuse for why I haven't got another horse to introduce to you yet! At this point, I'd really need to enlist the help of another person ... and recently there's just not been the time for dilly-dallying around the barn!
With the forecast predicting an extended period of miserable weather, I took the opportunity yesterday to try something that I've been meaning to do for ages ... get a "big picture" look at the Pemberton Valley, as viewed from the Pemberton Meadows. This is a 24-shot, handheld, 180 degree panoramic, with me standing with my back to the barn entrance ... click on the image to enlarge it!
Another perk of the time of year, when the length of the nights begins to outstrip the duration of daylight: Alpenglo season is here! Here's a pastel version to get you started - I wouldn't want to blow your mind with dazzling colours splashed over the mountains too soon! :D
Hmmm ... Mt Currie is featuring a lot lately, isn't he?!
Keep your weight in your heels!
