ARCHIVE 183 – IN A FIELD IN SOUTH BRISTOL (MONO)

In a field in south Bristol; 28 Aug 2010.

This was one of a group of these beautiful animals that lived in a nearby field.  Our neighbours used to love feeding them – carrots were a firm favourite.  One day I went along with them, and took a few shots.

Once again, I like to get close in to large animals, filling the frame with them.  This isn’t the whole of the horse’s head, but I like the way the rough, tough and very textured harness frames the upper part of the face – this could be a picture of Nature bridled or firmly restrained.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 75mm; 3200 ISO; converted to mono in Silver Efex Pro 2.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

      Chris, thank you very much – that’s good to hear! “Up close and personal” often does it, I think, while of course also minimising distractions from the background. Most of the subject is sharp in this case, but to me that’s not an essential thing. Adrian
