One of the Barn Cats.
 
At Angels on Horseback there are 2 Barn Cats. It took them a little while to warm up to me and others, but now they love the attention. They were given to AOH when their previous owner sold their farm. It appears they were taken in as feral kittens and raised for controlling mice in the barn. They are super sweet and starting to pose for me, be it reluctantly though. I was at the farm yesterday getting some ideas for my new project, Heroes and Healers. I hope to be doing a lot of portraits in the near future for the project and get more images on the page. I have some appointments with K9s, SAR Dogs, and a few individuals lined up in the next few weeks. If you would like to be included in the project, please contact me so we can get something scheduled. Free portraits and exposure to your group if you would like. Send me an email at bearwoodsphoto@gmail.com.

Fabio on the fly.
 
This will be the last one of Fabio I post for a little while, I promise. He is just a beautiful horse to photograph! He will be a wonderful addition to the therapy horses at Angels on Horseback. He was working off nervous energy from being at a new place and would run for a little then come over and visit. He will start meeting the other horses sometime this week.

Fabio’s Headshot

Fabio’s Headshot.
 
I had to do a few headshots of Fabio when I was at Angels on Horseback. He is just a very handsome horse. Each of the 7 horses at Angels have a stall in the barn, and on the outside is a photo. This will be his photo probably. In case someone might be interested…a chance for a company or an individual to do something wonderful could be to sponsor one of the horses at the barn. You would have to contact the folks at AOH to find out details, but you would have your name or company’s name on a plate in front of the stall of the horse. It goes a long way in helping them achieve their goal of offering therapy to those in need of their services. I’ll even come do some portraits of you with the horse!

Fabio.
 
I am very fortunate to be able to volunteer my services as a photographer to Angels on Horseback in Jasper, Georgia. The work they do is incredible and well worth supporting. Sometimes my volunteering is more fun than work. Take the past 2 days for example. I got to meet Fabio, wonder how he got that name? Fabio is a Haflinger horse and just beautiful. He will fit in wonderfully as a therapy horse as his disposition is calm and friendly. He loves to be around people. I will share more images of him over the next few days to showcase his lovely mane! If you don’t know much about Angels on Horseback, please check out their work at angelsonhorseback.org. They can always use donations, and especially volunteers. Stop by sometime meet the horses, they have a Hoedown next month too!

Just watching the rainbow

Just watching the rainbow.
 
The rainbow the other night was so incredible. I must have seen a hundred or so images from friends and neighbors that photographed it and then shared it. I have talked with many who saw it, and the common statement from everyone one is it was the most intense light and vibrant rainbow they had ever seen. I would agree. The quality of the light and crisp edges to the rainbow lasted 10 minutes although it seemed to last 30 minutes or more. After I photographed the horses and the rainbow, we were walking back to the barn and Evelyn agreed to pose for me for a few quick images. She said “make sure you get the barn in the frame”.

Horses and Rainbows

Horses and Rainbows.
 
Yesterday was our turn to go down to Angels on Horseback and do their evening feeding. There was a storm coming in as we drove down, and it was a steady rain while I gathered the horses to come into the barn. When we finished feeding them and were letting them back out to the pasture, I noticed a nice break in the clouds to the west. The sun dropped below the cloud line and I immediately looked back to the east. I saw the one of the most vibrant double rainbows I have ever seen. I ran to the car and grabbed the camera, remember I always try to carry a camera with me, and then ran to the hill below the horses. I wanted to capture a few images of both the horses and the barn if possible. I thought I would have only a few minutes to capture images, but it felt like the rainbow lasted for 10 minutes or more. One of the horses, Two Hawk, decided he wanted a close up and walked down to where I was standing. After giving him a nice scratch behind his head, he posed for me. I have never seen such a vivid and more vibrant sky and rainbow than the one I saw last night. The blues in the sky were so intense it was surreal. On a side note, I love LCD screens that tilt like my Canon M6. It allowed me to hold the camera inches above the horse poo and still capture the image, a couple years ago I would have been forced to being doing a load of laundry as soon as I returned to the house, due to having to get down to that angle of view. This was truly being in the right place at the right time, but also being prepared by having a camera with me.

Flying High

Flying High.
I wanted to do a quick post with 2 images from yesterday’s Open Barn with Angels on Horseback. It was a huge success and a lot of fun. I can not begin to tell you how incredible it is to see such a great group achieve the goal of purchasing this farm. Many of the donors came by, along with local politicians and mainly kids. They played ate and of course flew high over the jump on the obstacle course. Calvin the Pony of course showed them all how it was supposed to be done!
