Ponies in the snow

Can't get anywhere else today and the ground is frozen so hard I thought I'd let the ponies out for a run for the first time in months. All with k-30 and 55-300mm, which I haven't used together before so still learning. Shutter speed a little low for freezing the action - my mistake, but will know better next time.

As well as increasing the shutter speed try some with a slower one and panning.It'll lose the clutter of the fence

Probably biting, they do a lot of that when playing

Thanks Alan. Not something that I have tried, but I can see it working. Whether I can actually pull it off is another matter....

Dog in on the act as well, but with the A-50mm 1.7 this time. Much sharper than the 55-300, but so hard to take action shots with a manual lens.

I like these
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

The ponies are lovely - two woolly bears !
Nice of the dog as well.

+1 from me. They look better than some of the "wild" ponies around here
