Framed

This was taken in mid-September on Cottonwood Ridge above Indian Canyon (south of Duchesne, Utah).  I was trying to be artsy.
Unfortunately, neither Steve nor Boss cooperated long enough for multiple shots.  (It's really hard to get those guys to be still!)
This is from the same ride, looking toward the long line of skirted hills known as the Bad Land Cliffs.

Doesn't matter how few, Janie, these are perfect and perfectly framed! Love them -- of Boss, Steve and the Bad Land Cliffs! And gorgeous skies to boot!! Perfect!

Great framing. Excellent captures!

Steve and Boss are looking nice. Your natural frame is nice looking too, as are the views. I love looking off the top of Indian Canyon. Feels like the world is at your feet.

It looks pretty artsy to me!

Love your photography! Glad to have found you on SkyWatch. I just spent a week driving across southern Utah - so stunning.

Hi Janie, I love those first two 'creative' pictures. You did GREAT. The sky is SO blue in all of those pictures. Gorgeous!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Glad Steve was willing to pose for just that shot - will make a great picture for his desk! Your Bad Land Cliffs photo shows such depth. Snowing here in CO today.

Carol said...

Beautiful! Steve and Boss look great framed! And the Bad LandCliffs are gorgeous...is that snow...

Cynthia said...

I love those shots- they ARE artsy!

I may be having some Uthappytrails-esque photos on my blog next week as we're taking off with our kids for Capitol Reef in a few hours. We'll stay in Greg's Dad's weekend house in Meadow tonight then off for the wilds of Utah's best kept secret. Woot Woo!

Of course, our hiking pictures will be with kids rather than horses. I suspect your horses are better behaved!

and you suceeded - I think I like the second one most. I love the spikiness of the dead tree, a great find.

Deb said...

Janie...those are great shots....

Well you were successful, Janie. I think that is very artsy--perfect framing! What a great shot. Beautiful hills, too!

Carver said...

I think you did a great job of framing them. Wonderful shots.

Photo Cache said...

Love the framing you made. Great photos.

Happy weekend.

Lisa Wilson said...

Very cool shots! My husband hates to stop or pose for pictures, on his own two feet!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Your 'artsy' is awesome!!!

Janie: Beautiful framed both Steve and Boss in the dead tree.

George said...

I think you were successful in being artsy, even if Steve and Boss didn't cooperate. Your last shot is beautiful.

Luiz Ramos said...

Beautiful shots and still pics!!

mountain.mama said...

Those pictures turned out very artistically--in spite of Steve and Boss!

Jenn Jilks said...

So much fun!

susieofarabia said...

Your attempt at artsy really worked. Love this post!

Great shot of Boss and Steve framed by the trees. Boss is one handsome horse. The photo of the Bad Land Cliffs is spectacular.

Lily Hydrangea said...

I like the first one the best, good job for capturing them while you can. The colors are perfect together!

Kilauea Poetry said...

I thought this was beautiful but pretty clever..I like them as you have the opposite direction going between the tree limbs! Your photo is artsy!

Sharodindu said...

Great job Done!
the 1st shot is really first!

Capturing the subject from the back of a dry tree is a brilliant idea indeed.

Great job I repeat!
:)

Kathleen said...

I'd say you most definitely succeeded!
Beautiful shots. I haven't seen blue like that in a long time. I'd better start looking up more!
Thanks, Janie.
BTW: That header shot is breathtaking.

Titania said...

Great sky watch; very "arty"! The picture frame is perfect; I love old trees past their best but still standing sentinel, so very attractive. Janie, thank you for your comments.

Pyatshaw said...

Real cowboy shots. I love them. The only difference is that in the films they don't wear these orange garments!

Bhavesh Chhatbar said...

You did very well with just one available shot with them!

I love the title. The trees are perfecy frames and your two guys look great.

Gaelyn said...

That first shot of Steve and Boss is great. Your views are so vast.
