Paint Horse on Williams Lake Road, Washington

I dont live very far from the US border, and its easy to just nip down to a fabric store I like in Colville. I love this road, called Williams Lake Road, which is not so much different than some of the landscapes near Williams Lake BC in some ways. Anyway this paint gelding was out in the weeds there. This was processed with Nix effects. Its a bit misty on purpose (K, Ron?). Hope you like it.

Looks much better if you click on it. Has the look of an very old film print.

The wood is clear between the knots.

Beautiful! Love the muted colours. I would have been tempted to crop it and make the horse the prominent feature but that would have changed the feel entirely. I guess that is why you are a far better photographer than I. The eye's have it!
