Sunday stills: Eyes

Eyes are the windows to the soul.




I have loads and loads of horse eye pictures. They are so expressive and difficult to catch a horse eye without your reflection or the reflection of the surroundings in it.

A patch of thinner hair around the eyes of a horse in the summer (most commonly seen on greys as the black skin shows up better) is called an "eye patch" The dark skin will show around the eye as the smaller hairs shed out if the horse is in good health. Unfortunately I do not have a recent picture of eye patches I will leave that for another time.

Mirror mirror on the wall, whose eye is the fairest of them all? Gal or mare?

First pic only loaded halfway for me so I couldn't see what I assume are very pretty eyes. Love the horse one.

Excellent first shot. The shadows and color are great. Those eyes really come out. Nice job.

Love your first photo. It looks like it was taken at sunset, or maybe in candle light. Wonderful 3/4 view. You have a natural eye for the play of light and shadow. Excellent job Sydney.

The first photo is very dramatic.

I've always loved the white lashes against the dark eye of a gray horse.
