Ember in the Full Moonlight...Yes, Moonlight.
You're probably thinking that this photo was taken in the early morning. If so, I've fooled you. It was taken slightly after midnight within the past couple weeks (whenever the last full moon was). Ember and Czar were outside in the front arena happily nibbling on hay and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get this shot. Ember was backlit by the full moon. I sat in the ground and took an ~45 second exposure shot to get this. She actually walked away at one point but because of the long exposure you don't really see it other than some ghosting of the image. I was using my phone as a flashlight to set my camera as well. The next morning when I woke up I couldn't find my phone in the house. Yep, you guessed it I left it in the arena. Found it face down in the dirt and it looked like it had been stepped on. Luckily it was not damaged despite 1200 pound horses having stepped on it.
