Weekly Photo Challenge: Heritage

Cold Bloods

Cold Bloods | Franken | 2016

This weeks Weekly Photo Challenge from Word Press’ “The Daily Post”  has the theme “Heritage”. There is a lot of heritage in Franken, the region around Nuremberg. Among it are the many horse drawn carriages that take tourists through the historic centers of our towns. Many of those carriages are drawn by gargantuan cold blood horses, beautiful and amazing creatures. Also these horses are part of the heritage of this rural area, have the carried the load of heavy farm work for centuries.

This photo gives also an impression what you can do with a 12mm wide angle prime lens, in this case the mZuiko 12mm F/2.0 that I had attached to my PEN-F. I was on my knees practically underneath the horses, shooting upwards looking through the swivel LCD screen of the cam.

I hope you are having a good week, mine is quite rough as the job that pays the bills is completely dominating my days and nights. No time for shooting and no time for blogging. These weeks are really tiring. But it could be worse. It could be Monday 😉

Have you checked out the Learning Center with all my free tips and inspirations around photography?

Have a great Friday!

Marcus

  1. I’m glad a use has been found for these lovely working horses. Sadly, in England we only seem to have a few, living in heritage museums, or kept by people who love them, but cannot find work for them.

  2. First, I thought that the horses were charging toward you and it was scary. I love this low point of view; everything looks so different. The horses are wonderful! Marcus, this is a great photograph! Love it!
