I’ve been parading my UK landscape book left and right for a few weeks now and this shot seems to be a favorite in the book. The mood and scenery is strong but what makes it is really the horse dressed in a red cape that just pops out in a most delightful way. It’s an utter flop so far on IStock, maybe because it’s a bit lacking as a commercial shot, although it is beautiful decoratively — or maybe because it just plain sucks as a thumbnail or even at this size and needs to be seen in a larger, more inviting format to be appreciated properly (you can view it in a slightly larger format on my photoshelter site). Or maybe could it be that in the book I flipped it horizontally? Maybe the brain reads it better with the horse on the right? I wonder if that could be the case…

This was shot in Scotland’s Trossachs area on a late September afternoon.
