Ghost Horse II

Last year, I posted Gem running the trail around the pond as Ghost Horse.  Several of you compared the photos to a Bev Doolittle painting.  Seems Gem was up for a repeat performance this year.

ghostly,the second looks mythical,

Absolutely gorgeous horse...and a wonderful capture!

Nancy said...

Even though I know she has a fence, it looks like she's enjoying her freedom and solitude in the woods...Maybe she is communing with nature.....
I love making stories with animals....

She's a beautiful horse.....

Madge Bloom said...

You could make one of these shots into a very challenging jigsaw puzzle! I'm so glad you decided to join us and share at 'Weekly Top Shot.' :-) I hope you'll come share again next week...

Marie said...

Such lovely photos! I don't remember last year's. It really does remind me of a painting, and I checked out the one you linked...but I can see my own vision of it! Have you ever thought of drawing this?

Cat said...

I love this post! Great capture of a perfect moment!

Texan said...

Is that a unicorn I see? No not a unicorn its a magical horse! You can hear the forest whisper and the sprites dancing as it passes.

Rose said...

Need to remember to look up that painting..not familiar with it. I wonder if she knows how she looks...I have a feeling she does.

Deb said...

missing moments said...

Love that first photo.

Furry Bottoms said...

I remember falling in love with Gem when you showed the first Ghost series. I think that might have been when I started following you? Which reminds me. I wonder if Pig is out of hibernation yet.

Pat Tillett said...

It really does look like one of those paintings...

MICKAN from QUEENS FIELD¸.•°`♥✿⊱╮ said...
