On The Ranch

Ranch country rope farm horse rodeo corral

Canon 5D Mark III, 24-105mm f/4 IS USM at 58mm, f/5.6 for 1/400 at ISO 100

Despite the title, this photo was not taken on an actual ranch but at a horse corral in Oak Glen California. We were out to pick chestnuts when I came across this scene and fortunately I had my camera with me to capture it. Sometimes a scene is so perfect it is as if someone deliberately set it up just so it could be photographed, and this was one of those times. I chose to process this photo with high contrast and clarity to accentuate what the midday sun had already done in bringing out the detail and textures in the ropes, harnesses and fence. Some photos are hard to “see” and others come easy, this was definitely the latter.

  1. Your photos are beautiful art pieces. The eye is drawn to the stillness and motion within each piece while the heart feels the emotion of being present within each photograph.
