2011 Colorado Cowboys and Great American Horse Drive

Postby Carien Schippers on Sun May 15, 2011 11:06 am

We had a great group this year, with people coming from as far away as the UK and Australia, lots of new friendships made and great images created. Despite starting out with snow and cold on the first day we were mostly blessed with big blue skies, wonderful clouds and herds of horses that seemed to know exactly what we wanted, not to mention the usual group of hard riding cowboys and cowgirls headed up by the incomparable and irreplaceable ED! Icing on the cake was Mark from Nikon with all the latest gear and goodies to try out.

Here is Tyler shooting during the lunch stop on Sat of the drive. Amazing how quickly these horses settle down to take a nap and don't move a muscle until it's time to move on again.

Yes, sometimes the herd experiences traffic challenges...

It was great seeing our old friends.....the models....although some of them were a bit on the sarcastic side (which I for one can't understand)
