Taking the Backroad

Back Road Riding

On the back road

The old farm

I took a bike ride the other day hoping to shoot a few rural scenes and as I passed the farm at Ormsta I met these two horseback riders on the old gravel road towards Husby (where they have their horses). To the left with the big smile Rikke Strøyberg (she's originally from Denmark), riding on Venice. Next to her Céline Kristiansson on Vendela. The farm buildings and the fields here are used by Rolf from the Hammarby Farm.

How'd you get up so high? Climb a tree! Great portrait of the girls and horses...love the smile on the girl on the left! This shot could have been taken in Ocala - well, except for the cold weather gear!

Great farm photos, too.

All 3 shots are great. I love the red that is used on all your farm buildings!

Steffe, I think you better take up horseback riding immediately!

Randy said...

I agree with Brattcat, those are wonderful.

I have so few occasions to take pictures of horses. This is a beautiful portrait in a perfectly natural pose.
