Up-close portraits of the teams with competition action shots.
This series was captured on Sunday, September 2, 2018 during the lead up to the Registered Mares – 4 Horse Hitch (Class: 1502) of the Draft category.
I used a Canon EOS-1ds Mark III body with the Canon Lens EF 70 – 300 IS USM lens, Hoya UV filter. No flash.
Standing outside the stadium, in the bright sun, the teams road to the stadium from the barn.

There was a long wait for the second team that allowed me some fantastic closeups.
These are inside the stadium, from the bleachers.
This photograph of an expired (freshly dead) Speckled Swimming Crab washed up by the surf onto Cocoa Beach one January morning is now available on Getty IStock for your creative usages.
Click the photograph, below, to visit the listing.
It is one of the thirteen (13) images accepted in set with the theme “Beach Textures.” During our winter visits to Florida our routine is to rise in the pre-dawn darkness, enjoy the emerging sun, different every day. Then, I take off for a beach walk in the dawn, early morning light.
The view of the first photograph is frontal including eye stalks and antennae above the mouth. The main body, called cephalothorax, is speckled. The mouth is the large opening in the center of the leading edge of cephalothorax. To the right and left are the arms with pincers. Scientific Name: Arenaeus cribarius.
This view from the rear is also available. Click the photograph to view listing.
It is a rear view of the walking legs extended from the cephalothorax.
This gull feather, below, was the inspiration for the series. You might remember my posting of the feather as “Beach Dreams” back in January, shortly after I captured the image.
