Lots of hard work, I some times miss my horse farm and the small amount of cattle we had, I don't think people really understand the work that goes into having a working farm. Have a nice weekend.

No...I need a new camera. I have a point and shoot (I think that is what you call them) so, my pictures are nothing to look at. Some day...
Love what you are doing with your pics...amazing. But of course, I have always admired your blog and pics. Thanks for keeping the agriculture industry going. I am grateful for folks like you.

Can't believe it feels like spring where you are at...can I come over;)??

Thanks so much for the shout out. Hopefully this teaching others thing will pay off and I'll learn a thing or two too:) Happy weekend.

You are so right, the only way to really get better is to practice.

You can read about photography basics until you're blue in the face, but there's no substitute for just grabbing that bad boy by the neck, switching him to Manual Mode, and clicking away! :-)

Oh, and don't forget that Pioneer Woman always has photo challenges, too!

Happy Weekend,
Anne

Thank you for sharing!

I still only have a point and shoot but have still been practicing. Maybe I'll take my honey up on his offer for a new camera!

I desperately need a new camera! I want to learn about photography and try all of these wonderful new ways of taking photos.....but am stopped by my simple point and shoot camera. :( I am definitely asking for a new camera for Christmas. No question about it..... lol! Have fun with calving season, Kristin! If we lived closer, I'd love to help out on your ranch! :)
