Eye of the Beholder

110428 ramsey 098I probably like this image more than I should. It’s a little abstract—distorted and cropped so tight that it is a little hard to figure out. But to me, this ranch gelding on the Seven L Ranch near Devers, Texas, has a willing expression. His eye pulls me into the photo, and I like how it is positioned between the curved shapes of the rope and his blaze. The light, coming from the fading glow of a sun already below the horizon, is soft and rich. I thought it was too late that night to get any more decent photos, but this image presented itself just as I was about to pack up my gear. Maybe that’s why I like it so much.
