2013, Day 185 - Trot

I went with my buddy Chris to meet up with Julie, my friend and the official photographer for Team NW, at the Country Classic Preview.  Our timing just just off, all morning there was a nice layer of cloud cover allowing to great shooting from all angles but once we arrived the clouds broke.  Oh well, you make the best of what you've got and while I was able to get some good shots of the jumps I liked a series of riders walking, trotting, then cantering around the arena.  It allowed me to choose my angle with the background in mind and although backlit I got some shots I like such as the one below.  I had fun experimenting and although I hadn't planned on it I might go back in the morning to play just a little bit more...
