Mustang Sky: Skywatch Friday

Brilliant sunrise shot

These sunrise photos were taken with my Nikon D200 early one morning. The first photo reminded me of a dust bowl cloud that was moving towards me, with the sky looking like it was on fire again. It looked and felt as if a herd of wild horses are coming my way! I know, I imagine these things. What do you see?

Cloudy Sepia Sunrise

The "sepia" edit gives photo #2 a totally different look, wouldn't you agree? I can still picture getting up early to do farm chores in this scene, especially to feed the horses on the ranch... but where would we be without color? This photo was edited at Picnik (which by the way, are closing soon). To participate in this Friday meme, along with this week's theme, visit Foto Friday

Book Beginnings 

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.


"Generous, willing, and patient, horses and ponies have been serving people well for thousands of years. We have ridden them, driven them, used them to pull heavy loads and to plow our fields, and fought battles from their backs. Incredibly strong but very gentle, they look to us for leadership, which is why they allow us to tell them what to do."

"The tough wild horses that once roamed the plains of the western U.S. are called Mustangs. Descended from Spanish horses taken to the U.S. in the 1500s, they were turned loose or escaped and became wild. For centuries Mustangs lived a free life. Today extra efforts are made to protect them."

This is an in-depth reference guide, introducing 75 breeds, to discussing riding lessons, care and groom and excellent horse photos.

For some very nice photos of Arabian Appaloosa's, you will want to visit Coyote Creek Horse Farm.

Wild Horses by Natasha Bedingfield is a popular song requested by many of my piano students. If you play an instrument and would like the chords to the song, you can find them, here.
