Week 35 #37 Stop Action

12 Comments

When I attended the Herrmann’s Royal Lipizzan Stallions show which I wrote about in Week 31, the stallions put on quite a performance for us.   Several of the stallions were well trained in “Airs above the Ground”.  The capriole is a jump in place where the stallion leaps into the air, tucking his forelegs under himself and kicks out his hind legs at the top of the the jump.  This stallion did not disappoint the crowd and performed this amazing jump several times providing me a perfect photo for “stop action”.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.
