It's been a busy few weeks so I've been sort of a lackluster blogger.  I'm trying to stay really motivated to get out and take pictures in interesting spots, mostly because I enjoy playing around with the camera.  I'm definitely a blogger who frolics in the fields but that's due more to me having fun with the creative part of the photography.  It's something I've really fallen in love with and even though I normally only post outfits pictures, I'm trying to expand my horizons and take photos of the gorgeous landscape around me.  Winter is such an amazing time in Alaska to take pictures and even though there's a few challenging elements to it such as figuring out how to shoot in the ice fog and with the strange sunlight,  I'm learning a lot.  I'm waiting to see if I can get into a photography class up at UAF, but it's pretty full at the moment  I'm just crossing my fingers that someone will drop out.

We just moved Dollar to his now home at mom and dads and he's starting to settle in. (Even though he got out last night and dad had to go hunt him down.  The silly horse was walking down the back roads and dad jumped out of the truck, "BAD HORSE! Bleepbleeepbleep go bleeping home!"  And darn if Dollar didn't turn right back around and start hoofing it home.  Dad's definitely top of the food chain according to Dollar.)   It's going to be fun to get to work with him more now, he still has a huge gap in his education and while we're going to work him a little bit in dressage, he really seems to have more of a mind for jumping.  (The horse does not like being micro managed and dressage is pretty heavy on the micro managing.)   I keep forgetting to get the camera out where we're around him, I will eventually get some shots of him, he looks pretty cute now with his furry winter coat.
