Chloe & Shela Lark

Chloe Riding Shela Lark

Chloe Riding Shela Lark

I was out at the barn today helping hang a fan in Shela's stall.  Chloe, who just turned 14, was out in the arena giving Shela a workout, so I took a couple of pictures of them.  Chloe is a dressage rider and Shela Lark is her 8-year-old mare.

Photo was taken with a Nikon D40 with Nikkor 55-200mm zoom lens.  Photo parameters:  f/5.6, 1/500 sec., ISO-200, @ 135mm.

And then I went flying.  I decided to fly out to Blue Cypress Lake to look for alligators.  Didn't see any, but it was a nice day.  So, the lake:  first of all, it's blue, as you can see; and then its shore is lined with beautiful cypress trees, thus the name.  I have seen kayaks out on this lake that are smaller than the alligators swimming nearby.  Been thinking about going kayaking out here.  Maybe not.  I'll let you know if I do.

  1. On our next visit, I want to take a flight. I guess Doc and I will have to take turns. We enjoy your photos.
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Is this Chloe Hatch, who has bought the Dutch horse Slogan not so long ago?? Slogan 12 years, gelding, who was imported from the Netherlands?

    Because we are looking for her, would love to have contact to ask if everything goes well with Slogan, does he liked the USA and so on.

    In anticipation of your message.
