    What great great pictures, and how much fun to see them. In all the time I've ever taken pictures, I only have gotten 1 interesting candid, the imfamous "Bowling for cats" picture of my colt last X-mas when I tried to get a cute Christmas shot. I got him to hold a present, then stepped back to take the picture, just then one of the cats was strolling towards the colt who then lowered his head and bowled the present right at the cat, I wish it was a split second later as that cat went straight up to avoid being hit with the present, my colt had rather good aim.

    OMG, keep 'em coming. These two photo threads are the best threads that have been started on here in recent history and I am enjoying everyone's pics!

    Here is my absolute FAVORITE picture of Frodo, EVER. This IS his personality, to this day. He is playful in nature, usually up to something but casual about it. He kills me with his sense of humor sometimes and I love his expression. He was successful in untying himself, he did not go anywhere, he just did it to do it I guess:

    And this one, he and I meeting for the first time:

    I love taking photos!

    Here are a couple of my favourite impromptu photos...

    the photo with two horses is my hanoverian mare and her 2003 filly, playing in a paddock.(she was weaned, then a year later they were reunited with no problems)

    the bucking photo is the 2003 filly being an athlete! (this is why I was a little hesitant to be the first person on her back!)

    the last photo is the hann mare again, being spunky at 20 yrs old! (those Bolero's are cheeky!)

    the photos are GREAT! I have a couple - can anyone tell me how to post a pic? Can I do it with just the basic membership?

    You have to have a premium membership to post photos, but you can put them on a free server like Webshots, picturetrail, etc. and post a link.

    We're going to move this great thread to off course, so more people can see it and share their candid shots.

    Thanks!

    I love candid photos! Great shots everyone. JB, I have always loved that photo of the late, great JB.

    These were posed for a photograhy class, but I really like the way they turned out

    This one I think was used on a local horse magazine cover last year, but we never got a copy

    I took this one of the Iggies (only decent photo I've ever shot)

    My mom sent me this, sent to her by a friend (the friend has horses and this looks like one of hers, but I am not sure if this photo is hers)

    I kind of like this one of Bugs and Frodo, the color is wonky, but I like it because Bugs looks almost purple! I am a purple junkie!

    http://inlinethumb31.webshots.com/41...600x600Q85.jpg

    I have always just liked this pic of Bugsy:

    http://inlinethumb33.webshots.com/39...600x600Q85.jpg

    This is my greyhound, Java, this is the single best picture I have ever taken of him. He's such a nice dog... he is so much more grey around the muzzle now.

    These are two of my favorite pictures of the boy. It really shows the two sides of his personality.

    My friend, training his horse in our arena.
    Look at the loop standing perfectly round over his head:

    I think it's mostly luck! With a bit of planning, at least having the camera ready. But my favorites seem to be just lucky shots where the shutter went at exactly the right moment and I had no idea what I'd actually taken until I opened it up at home and noticed the details.

    This on has to be one of my favourite candids. I was attempting to take a photo of my paint mare through my QH's ears. It was snowing and a big fat flake fell at just the right moment.

    From that same day I love this photo of my filly. She was tearing around like a maniac and I was just pointing and shooting and praying I was getting something good. It was luck I caught her at the top of her rear.

    Oh, I love this thread! I am in awe of the fabulous photographers here! I think it's all about being in the right moment, and sometimes pure luck - but there is a little bit of an "eye" needed sometimes just to know that it could be a good shot.

    I have shared these before (the best subjects in the world are ponies and little girls):

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...7_edited-1.jpg

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...July292006.jpg

    This one I took in a split second...just stuck the camera down between 2 wires (hence the over exposed nose):
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...Bear120905.jpg

    We are blessed with amazing sunsets over our property and I have dozens of cool shots like this one:

    My ottb gelding that I lost about a year ago (I did edit some poop out of the grass and I didn't do such a great job)

    No ponies in this shot but they wre with us....

    My husband used to be a photographer, so he is usually pretty good for some candid shots! Here are some that he has taken:

    http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...00844553SkOYcF
    http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...00844553BtKBBG
    http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...00844553joHrEl We don't know who this is, but this is one of my favorite pictures he has taken!

    And then these two were taken by Don Osley:

    Great pictures everyone! I love this thread!


    Hundred Acres: I LOVE the picture of (your daughter??) reading to the pony. Completely priceless!
