It's a summer morning in the wilderness of the American west.  The sun rises behind a thin cloud and casts rays down upon a shallow stream that runs through a grassy along side a patch of dark fir trees.   A blonde haired woman woman in yellow dress with a floral pattern rides an appaloosa horse side saddle as it wades through the sparkling water.  The white coated, brown spotted horse gazes off into the distance towards the dawn, while the woman glances back towards, you the viewer.
 
I spend a great deal of time getting the lighting just the way I wanted it for this scene.  I really like the way this scene turned out.
