shoot the horse - the Upcountry


On a crisp 38 degree morning this past weekend, I headed into the Upcountry just north of Greenville, SC armed with my new camera and a mission to shoot some pictures and learn more. My family bought me a Sony nex-3 with multiple lenses yet I have struggled to find the time to really learn how to use it, though I've had it since August. I do love it and am eager to learn. I hope you will see my progress reflected here on the blog...


Spying this beautiful, meticulously manicured horse farm was reason enough to stop and linger with some very friendly subjects who posed for me in the warm sun...




My long lens lets me get up close and personal without actually trespassing or getting kicked in the teeth! This fella was stunning and his painted coat gleamed in the morning light. He seemed to know how gorgeous he was and had a regal air about him. Everything was going great until, one by one, the horses all decided I wasn't that interesting and they preferred to pick patches of warm sun and roll on their backs. They lollygagged about stretching their legs as the morning warmed up...



Stay tuned for more impressions of the Upstate and some of it's fantastic state parks.
