White Horses!

A two day absence and you guys already thought I had fallen into my bad habits again. Saturday was a traveling day for vacation and yesterday was unpack/veg/mow the lawn day. Not to mention that some of us had to go to our day job again starting today.

Anyway, I have started to go though my pictures from vacation and this was one of the easiest posts since it was the easier of my galleries to put together. As you know - I went out to grab some photos of the rising sun on the day after Independence Day. Seemed like a good idea when I had spontaneously woken up at 4:30 in the morning, stupid me. So off I went.

On the way back from the 2 different spots that I hit I ran into these two beautiful creatures just staring at the road while they were mowing the lawn. What a sweet deal - they mow the lawn and fertilize it at the same time.....!

I pulled over right there and started shooting. They backed off pretty quick but they were definitely interested in me and my clicking camera. The white one - the one that looks bleached, really is that bright - it isn't blown highlights. The two made a majestic pair as they strolled around their paddock. If you click for a larger view you can also see the whole gallery.
