Thanks to you all for your WONDERFUL contributions to this giveaway. I’ll be pulling reading recommendations from this comment section for months to come, you should too. I wish I could have offered 217 of these horse prints to give away but the one print I have to give has been won by Barb Stellmach — original comment #42.
Thanks to you all for being here, as always.
I thought you kiddos could use a little pick-me-up this week so I’m doing a giveaway here. I shot one of my favorite photographs of 2013 while I was out pheasant hunting with Robert in autumn. It’s a shot of five horses loping away from where I was standing with my camera in a ditch on an Idaho backroad that took us to somewhere beautiful; the buckskin in the middle of the frame is frozen, mid-buck. Sweet! It’s not a technically perfect photograph, in fact, it’s a bit front focused for my liking, but I like it for the feel of it, for the freedom of it, for the symbolism, for the memory of that day when I was out with my man and our dogs, fall was fading into winter, the wind was bitter cold and we were having a delightful time gunning for dinner.
I loved that day.
I love this picture.
I’ve had it printed up on the highest quality metallic Kodak paper and mounted on a gorgeous wooden block — it has a lovely shimmer to it that you are going to seriously appreciate. Minimal. Classy. Dare I say…modern? It’s lovely and it is TINY. It looks great on its own and wonderful if you have a cluster wall somewhere in your home. This print measures about 2.5×3.5 inches and comes equipped to hang (there’s a hole on the flip side that makes things real easy).
As always, I do giveaways because I appreciate you being here. There’s no need to tweet, pin, FB, insta or WHATEVER you crazy social networkers get up to on a regular basis! All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on the end of this blog post with your email address. Say whatever you want. Come to think of it, I need some new reading material, give me a title or two if you can think of one. If you win, I’ll hunt you down (in an un-creepy way). Also, I should mention that this giveaway is mainly for this wee horse print but I always send out a bevy of goodies in my winner packages so prepare for some of my homemade organic Methow Valley peach lavender jam, maybe some earrings and some other goodies, to boot. If you fear entering this giveaway may be a waste of your precious time because you live in Zimbabwe, fear not, I will be glad to ship this magnificent prize anywhere in the world.
I’ll leave this post open for a few days before I draw a name.
