Out Of My Way!

Out Of My Way!

That Old Tree


I decided to head over to the old tree the other day to see if it had started to turn green yet. As I walked down the path this horse came racing towards me so I decided to grab a few shots. In the sulky sat a young guy, we exchanged a few words before he rounded the tree and disappeared down the path. The land here at Välsta is owned by the Andersson family. They have a horse farm nearby and you will often meet sulky riders and horse back riders here.

Fabulous shot with the oncoming horse and that wonderful splash of red. The old tree is not yet leafed out.

Cool portrait: horse, sulky and driver.

I love that old tree and how you keep us up to date. Great shot of the horse tearing down on you.

Julie said...

Yep, love the horse and sulky too. You have captured such energy.

The tree is coming along ...

Margaret said...

Very nice photos! Did you use telephoto on the horse?

AB said...

I wonder why the horse riders are in such a bad mood.

I love how you can see the dust kicking up from the horse's feet and the wheels of the car. I live very close to Santa Anita Race Track so you've inspired me to get some shots there.

Such a great shot. He's headed right at you.

Great action shot of the horse and sulky! The old tree looks to be budding out.

It's a bit slow brattcat, but it is worth the wait as the tree looks different every day, I was here the day before I took this photo and I could spot a difference.

That I did Margaret. Shot that one with my old Canon Digital Rebel using the zoom lens. I shot the tree photo with my little Canon PowerShot.

I moved backwards and to the side as I started shooting so when I took the last shot I was standing on the field Leif.

He wasn't in a bad mood at all AB, I just figured it would be a fun title!

Glad to be able to inspire you Steve!

Stunning show, well caught. It looks like you were about to be run down.

I really like the composition of the horse and the winding path behind. And, of course, I always enjoy seeing how your tree is doing.

A salute to the well known tree and a tribute to the great picture of the horse!
