I’ve enjoyed working with the stunning Arabian horses bred by Steve and Laurie Gonzales here in Arizona. They’re such expressive, intelligent animals that really do know how to show off for the camera. Three of their youngsters can be seen in in the shots below: Faith, the dark bay¬†Arabian; Grace, the chestnut half-arabian filly; and Ace, the bright bay half-arabian.

Below are a few of my favorite shots from a couple of different afternoons this fall playing with settings on my camera and the 70-200mm lens.
