    I went for a walk today in a new location for me. The rain was always on the point of starting and I had to curtail my walk before I got to the top of this small fell (hill). The ponies spend all year outside hail, rain and snow. Comments welcome Ken

    I like both of these. The impending weather adds some serious drama to the scenes in both images.

    Very cool horses Ken! I like them both a lot, you have captured a great mood in these.

    Now, I managed to misread your title from Ponies to Peonies.... so I was in for a bit of a shock when I first opened this thread of yours... :rolleyes:

    Both are great, but the first is the better portrait. The stormy day really adds both visually and emotionally - emphasizing the toughness of these animals.
