Tim's One Photograph a Day

A Horse named Splash.


Horse: An unusual sight in a housing estate!

An unusual sight in a housing estate!

This, apparently, is Splash. Not quite what you would expect to see in a Community Centre in the middle of a housing estate! This horse was a surprise guest when we were on the Bus of Hope tonight!


A well behaved a very beautiful animal, this horse was something of an attraction this evening. I managed to get a good angle with the setting sun.

Clearly, Splash was hungry. She was nibbling the grass constantly. Gave me a good opportunity to line up the shot, once all the admiring youngsters were out of the way.

I am quite pleased with the framing of this. Splash taking up most of the height of the frame, but slightly to the right. This gives a lead in, with the head just left of centre. Gives the impression of space. If the horse moves, she will move forward into the empty area of the frame.
