Equine Love:: Grande Prairie lifestyle Horse Photographer

paint horseAlthough I no longer have horses, I adore them and am thrilled to bits every opportunity I get to photograph them. These are all clients’ horses — I’ll have to dig out some of the old photos of my  horses one of these days and scan them to share here.

Living in the country seeing wildlife is a regular, often daily, occurrence. This morning, however, my  husband and I saw something we’ve never seen before: a mule deer doe with triplets. Yes, three little fawns in tow. No I didn’t take any photos because, even with my 300mm lens, the resulting photo would have shown a lone deer as a spot on the photo with three tiny specks … you know one of those photos where someone says, “if you look really closely you’ll see ___”. So, I chose simply to watch them with our binoculars until they slowly made their way across the field. Triplets! Oh, and more horse photos to come soon.

I was never one of those kids that loved and wanted horses, but I do appreciate their beauty! That fuzzy muzzle is so sweet!

They are all wonderful shots but the first one would look great hanging on the wall. Nice work!

I love that first picture most. What a beautiful creature!

Diane, your horse images are great! I would have loved to have seen the doe with her triplets. A mom and her two young ones came through last year, but haven’t seen much activity this year. Hope you’re doing well.

This horse nose shot is very cool. I like it a lot. The toning is just right.

Great horse pics, Diane 🙂 The close-up muzzle shot is awesome!! And the second shot is really cool — it sort of has the look of an abstract painting. And funny how the horse in the barn looks like it’s reading!! 🙂

I like the first shot. If I owned a horse I could imagine that it would look as beautiful as this standing in a field.

Lovely horses. That closeup is great!

That first one is outstanding, Diane. I like the muzzle shot, too. That must have been fun to see triplets. Back when our farm office was actually out on the farm, we’d see deer come through every day during the summer. Two years in a row, the doe had twins. It was fun to watch them grow.
