Week 8 challenge (in my world the date for this is Feb 20-27)
I usually have my photo for the weekly challenge early in the week. (My week starts on Saturday). I spent this particular week suffering from a sinus headache. Thinking felt impossible. The fact that I was able to get my clothes on right side out and my boots on the correct feet was a miracle. At least I assume I was put together properly… no one said anything.
Friday after work I went up to the barn. It had been a week with no horsie time and I was going through withdrawals. As I was leaving that night I took one last look around hoping to see something that inspired me. The sun was already down behind the barn and nothing was speaking to me. As I approached the gate to the park I caught a glimpse of bright colours low in the sky. A quick course correction and I was parked below the gate at Fort Howe. I hiked in rather quickly, not wanting to miss the opportunity, scaled a huge mountain… OK, so maybe it was a large hill… got my shot of 4 photos, hiked back to my car and drove home. Days later, my heart rate returned to normal and I was able to breathe again with out too much difficulty. Exercise is highly overrated, but, oh the lengths we will go just to “get that shot.”
