Before getting into today's post I wanted to again thank everyone for your feedback, comments, plus 1s (on Google Plus) and RTs. It really means a lot to me and I so enjoy this photographic community and all of the talented individuals I interact with. You're all awesome! While out early one morning, as I am quite often, I stopped by a lake in hopes of catching a fisherman or two in a boat near the shoreline. I've been after a certain shot for some time and it has eluded me thus far. This particular lake has a nice trail that circles the perimeter and there are often mountain bikers, walkers and sometimes even people on horseback.
Having resigned myself to the fact that my intended target was again not available, I headed back to my vehicle wondering what I could do about the moody sky that begged to serve as a backdrop for something. After reaching the bottom of a steep hill I took one last glance and there it was. Like magic, a couple appeared on horseback from out of nowhere. I hit the prone position like a sniper and waited for the two to cross my field of view. I fired off several sets of handheld brackets and settled on the one below to process. Most of the steep hillside has been cropped out of the frame.
Have a fantastic day, friends!
