Baden Hill is the highest elevation in Southwestern Ontario and after walking to the top of it you know it must be true. Needless to say the view is spectacular. This was taken a few evenings ago looking south west. The sun had gone down behind some cloud cover to the west but left a remnant of colour to the south west that was beautiful.
Last night several of us went out to a farm in Baden Ontario to photograph horses on the run. We all had a great time. This type of photography is a great learning experience since you can experiment with all your settings to get the effect you are looking for.
This is taken below the pond in the village of Baden. The spring water was high and nature is just waiting for the temperature rise a little so the new growth can begin!

555 Snyder’s Road East, Baden Ontario. Everything is setup and ready to go. Looking forward to meeting all those who can come out.
On Saturday evening we went out to Baden again to get some more images of horses running.
They are such powerful animals and to stand in an open field with half a dozen or more horses galloping past you with in a couple yards is amazing. The thunder of their hooves has a rhythm that is almost hypnotic.
After charging past us they continued down the hill – dust flying!
This one is from the Baden horse series. The sun was setting and we were getting ready to leave and this one seemed to be longing to ride of into the sunset
Tonight I got together with a couple of friends to photograph horses. They are truly magnificent animals. This was taken just outside the village of Baden Ontario.
