Early in June I once again photographed the NC PAHA Arabian show in Hughesville, Pennsylvania. This photo is of the lovely Arabian stallion Czersk owned by Jean and Michael Popp and shown by Kriss Phelps of Crescendo Training Center in Ephrata, Pennsylvania. A gallery of images from the show may be seen here.
While in Pennsylvania I also saw many Amish working their fields putting up hay and straw. It is inspiring to me that in this technologically fast paced world there are still people holding on to their old ways and customs.
I spent a fun photo session with Kris Bowman and her world champion Percheron mare Lynda. It is a real treat for me to connect with people and horses I meet online!
Meanwhile back home we had a crew of Amish builders in to build a new barn for us and we are really excited by this new structure. The barn is up but now we need to get the interior and fencing done before we can move the animals back in. Speaking of which we have had lots of rain making for lush grazing, and dramatic skies. This is the best time of year to spend quality time with my horses. I will be traveling throughout New England, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia this summer, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a session!

Not being much of a writer I find that I tend to procrastinate when it comes to updating my blog. I find it so much easier to write some quick entries while I am on the road while they are fresh and new in my mind, than when I am home and catching up on the everyday things. Time seems to go by so quickly and when one event is over the next photo ops are just around the corner!
I have finally gotten through all my Colorado photos and for those of you die hards that look at every single image (and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing so) here you go! The Workshop gallery and the Horse Drive gallery. Also make sure you check out the awesomely wonderful video made by Mark Kettenhofen from Nikon. I could watch this over and over and I hope you enjoy it too. Can't wait for next year!
Now it will be on to choosing the top images to compile the calendar, if you see an image that you think should be in the calendar feel free to drop me an email!
