Backlit mare in winter

Here's a shot I got a couple of days ago in one of the outdoor turnouts. I'm always interested in rim lighting (backlit images) and this one worked well for me, with a little help from Photoshop to create some mood. The lighter diagonal areas in the bottom half are the mare's expelled breath in the cool winter air, backlit by the low sun. 

I'm happy to report that my photo website is very close to being a reality. I'll post details once I have enough images loaded to make it worthwhile checking out. In the meantime, there are lots of photos to be seen (although not all are my "art" images) on my personal blog, along with stories of life on the Canadian prairies from my perspective.
