    Great shot David. I've been waiting patiently for this one to make an appearance. The b&w really suits this shot.
  • David de Groot said:
    [] hehehe
    [] Thanks Allan. 'twas a good stop really.

    quite "Thelwell ", obviously been eating his oats, either that or a particular fan of Canon cameras and wanted to be in on the action !
  • David de Groot said:
    [] I'm ashamed to say I had to google Thelwell.
    But I definitely see the resemblance now :)

    Agree the black n white works well, that pony was crazy, great shot.
  • David de Groot said:
    [] Did you see it when we drove off in the paddock - it was at full tilt then - which I'd managed to get shots of it belting along.
  • maSnap said:
    [] Yeah I did, it just took off like a bullet. Did any of them turn out OK?
  • David de Groot said:
    [] Well this is one of the panned shots before we drove off. Didn't get any of the final bolt in the paddock as I was driving.

    nothing to be ashamed of, I remember reading/owning several of his horse cartoon books at the time my best friend had her own horse and I used to borrow one and we would do daft things , like jumping gates on the heath, nastiest incident I ever had was whilst riding a shetland cross ! I didnt fall off, it wouldnt have been far to fall but the darn thing jumped a ditch sideways, if we'd have parted company it wouldnt have been too bad, but we didnt !!

    Such a cutie :-) I love ponies! There is a farm not far away from where I live, where they have ponies. I get a chance to pet them every time I pass the place on one of my walks. The female pony is called "Misha" and the younger one is a boy called "Srečko" (it means "Lucky").

    Nice horsey, are sure it isn't a TS-E miniature?

    beautiful timing!! wonderful capture!

    [] Despite the comment going away, I'm going to reply anyway :P
    I recognised the cartoons once I saw them, but didn't recognise the name straight up.
    Sounds like quite the pony adventure you had too.
    [] Ponies (and horses for that matter) are wonderful to watch, esp. in gallop. You're lucky to have them close by (we have horses down the road from us too).
    [] [] Thanks!
    [] hehehe, could almost be, but no, it was just a real miniature horse.
  • looby88 said:

    LOL- hee hee, I just reconsidered and didnt think it that interesting, Thelwell was popular quite awhile ago, so I'm showing my age a bit I think ...
    do you still have a wild Brumby herds ?
  • David de Groot said:
    [] Around here, no, but down in the Snowy Mountains, and some areas out west, definitely.
  • Adam Randell said:
    Cool capture & processing David!! Excellent details mate!!
    There is still herds of wild brumbies on the Tin Can Bay Rd in some of the forestry areas.
  • David de Groot said:
    [] Good to know Adam!

    I like the light in his mane.

    [] 'twas what I was aiming for :)
    [] Thanks! Couldn't pass up an opportunity like this.
