train tracks & horseback

One of the [many MANY!] things I love about photography is the unusual and the unanticipated. When Katie called to schedule an engagement shoot, she asked, "Is it ok to take some pictures with us on horseback 'cause that's one of the things we love to do." You bet! How cool is that?! Well, it was even better than I imagined...hiking through golden pasture, seeing Al so clearly in his element, making pictures surrounded by beautiful evening glow light.

But what happened on the way to the barn was great too...hey, look, let's check out those train tracks (and an actual train sped by...just when we needed it to!)...a stop at an abandoned barn...and a chance to work with my 8 yr old son Elliot who traveled up to Palmyra with me to help with equipment.
