Our Photo Club, the PEI Photo Club, has monthly outings in which members are encouraged to participate, to compare notes and socialize.
In January our outing was to the Charlottetown Driving Park. Racing was cancelled on the scheduled Saturday due to the temperature and wind chill, but on Sunday three (!) of us ventured out.
Here’s proof that horses do have all four legs off the ground when they run. Please don’t ask me if this horse was pacing or trotting.
One of us had an ‘in’ with a horse owner so we were able to enter one of the barns and watch them get harnessed for a warm up, and then later, harnessed and fitted for a race. It was very dark in the barns and my Pentax is not very good in low light. The photos were converted in Lightroom to black and white and then split toning was applied: a yellow tint to the highlights and an sepia/orange to the shadows.
I’ll post some pictures of a race the next time round.
