Henna by tanikel Henna by tanikel
Freedom Hill Horse Rescue
Owings, MD | April 5th, 2014
Canon 5D MkII

Adopted!
Henna is a gaited Tigre Appaloosa and was adopted by one of our volunteers in the fall of 2014.  She's a mischievous little monster - knocking grooming buckets off the wall and removing pickets so that she could 'help' us paint gates (this was her reaction when I caught her messing with the pickets).

I'll have to dig through the archive and see if I have any more good ones of her - she's the queen of pulling ugly faces.  xD

What a cute horse.  I love the soft look to the background.  It puts all the focus on the horse.  The lighting is just right.  It gives her a glow to her coat and really makes the spots stand out on the coat.  A really great shot. :)

Thank you!  The pale splatter sheet we were using was great for a makeshift reflector.  =D

Wow! :) First i love horses! Second, i have seen here at my place people apply henna over animals, but none i saw looked so cute in a freckled style henna! :D So i'm just at the first glance fallen in love with this photo and the horse! :love:
The background is the pefect blur, and the horse is in perfect focus. You made it so well, I'm enjoying it! Thank you for bringing so beautiful animals for the serenity of our eyes. :)

Horses are definitely awesome animals.  =D

The spots are actually natural ones - her registered name is Annadale's Henna Red, but it's easier to just call her Henna.  But her spots are the same color, I didn't notice that before.  xD

Oh wow....what a beautiful coincidence...and here i thought you titled the photo based upon this. :D Well then i must say The Creator has made her more good looking than any human master could have beautified their animal even with henna. :)

Thanks!  I'm glad it turned out so well with how spontaneous it was.  I was scared about getting blue paint all over my camera.

I really like this art. Horse is beautiful (I love horses :heart:), colors too. 
it's a pity that the sky isn't more blue or darker. It could expose this horse more, but, anyway, awsome shot :love:

Thanks for the feedback!  I added a bit of a boost to the blues in the sky and brightened her face up a bit.  It definitely looks a lot better.  =D
