The snow is sparkling… by Michigan Professional Equine Photographer Laura Adams

The snow is sparkling like a million tiny suns. ~Lama Willa Miller

Our days have been brutally cold, but they’ve come to us bearing some incredible sunsets – which is rather unusual for the lower part of Michigan in the winter. On rare days like this, I sometimes muster up enough fortitude to venture out into the elements for a few moments, armed with a camera, so that I might capture a bit of the beauty that would otherwise go unwitnessed.

Such was the case the evening this was shot. There was an amazing sunset happening just behind a horse pasture, lending an amazing orange-ish red glow to this handsome little chestnut gelding. As the sun spilled out from behind the trees and illuminated his form, I waited for him to pick his head up and look at me. With all of the warm light in the frame, you wouldn’t guess that we had temperatures in the single digits. Being chronically allergic to snow and cold temperatures, I make a habit of not going out into the weather as often as I can get away with it – but capturing magical moments like this does make it worth the pain.

Serenity by professional equine photographer, Laura Adams.

Serenity. It’s under-rated.

This was one of those amazing winter days where the snow  gently blanketed everything, the air was still, and despite how cold you’d think it was, it actually wasn’t bad (our past few Michigan winters have gifted me with the ability to think that anything above 0 degrees Fahrenheit that doesn’t involve a blustery sub-zero wind is quite bearable.)

The horses here were quiet and still that day, and seemed to enjoy my company as I took in the beautiful view along side them. One of them stopped, framing the woods in front of us, so that I could capture the sight to share with you. I thought to myself as I was with them that this must be what serenity feels like: peace, beauty, companionship – and I was so happy that I had my camera to document that moment.

When Someone is Going Through a Storm by Michigan Equine and Horse Photographer Laura Adams of Laura Adams Photographic Art

When someone is going through a storm, your silent presence is more powerful than a million empty words. ~Thema Davis

We’ve been fortunate enough this year to have had only one real snow storm here in southern Michigan so far this winter (if you are one of the few who love that kind of weather – sorry – I can’t stand the stuff!), and I made it a point to go out in it and shoot. As much as I hate the cold and snow, I will admit that it IS beautiful while it’s falling, and there is nothing quite so pretty as horses, covered in snow, with snow flakes tangling in manes and tails as they drop from the sky. It can be downright magical. So, I force myself to go out in it, often using the beasts in my own pasture as my models and muses. Every equine in my own barn is sooo over being photographed that my biggest challenge is keeping them out of my face and far enough away that I can actually photograph them appropriately (well, that and getting to get the shots I want, while staying warm, and doing it all in as little time as possible…)

Happy new year to all of you, and may 2016 hold magical moments!
