The wetness of the scene enhances it, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Glad you think so, Ray...It wasn't enhancing me!
They almost wear a uniform Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It certainly does look that way, Andrew...I suppose it's what works
I like this - the guys relaxing on their horses, waiting their turn! Great song - do you have a banjo on your knee?
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, Banjo? I'm having enough trouble finding a guitar! smile
I especially like how everyone's back is to us except for the guy in front. smile Great song for this image.
Frank L Croston.: It took me ages to get them lined up! Thanks, Ginnie, I do like that song.

In their element..
Frank L Croston.: All enjoying themselves, Chris.
the musculature of the hind legs of the horses is impressive, Frank.

Your treatment really brings out the myriad of textures. Looks like time to recoil the the ropes and have another go.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Alan, I think they had just found out when their turn was.
Great picture Frank. I always rather liked Randy Newman!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Bill. Great songwriter, and lots of film scores too.
Perfect music, Frank! You sure can squeeze out the detail.
Frank L Croston.: An old favourite, I do like Randy Newman. Thanks, Mary.
I want to see you chased round the coral by a steer..
Frank L Croston.: Thats a strange
I guess in motor sport terms this is the pre-race paddock.
Frank L Croston.: Pretty much, Brian, I find this more fun, you wouldn't get near the paddock nowadays. I was telling Elizabeth how we would wander through the pits and hospitality areas after a grand prix, you could pick all sorts of stuff up, no one bothered.

Coping, whatever the sky throws at them.
Frank L Croston.: Tough guys, and horses, Anne, there was thunder, lightning, heavy rain, they just kept going.

When my daughter is out on endurance rides - the rain doesn't matter. The underfoot (hoof) is more dangerous and also when there is lightning in the air. The plus side is that the temperature is tolerable.

Just zoom a little out (or stand back) to include the horses' hoofs. Again very special otherwise.
Frank L Croston.: There was thunder and lightning during this event Louis, they didn't stop, which surprised me. Thanks very much.
Nothing but a bunch of horses' ... smile
Frank L Croston.: Pretty much, Larry. smile
