Local Horse on a Frosty Morning
Eating what's left of the tall grass along the fence line.
I had my camera set up incorrectly—but still got a decent shot. Never underestimate either one’s ability to screw things up, or for things to somehow sort themselves out in spite of you.
Shot with Sony α1 camera and 200-600 lens, with 1.4x extender. So this was a very long telephoto shot: 840mm. I had the camera’s in-camera image stabilization set way wrong, but got the shot anyway. Out of about 25 shots, it’s one of the few lucky breaks. I was planning to catch the sun moving into the slowly retreating shadows, and you can see just a bit of sun on the horse’s flank. In spite of myself, I wound up with this lovely photo.
