Life has a way of sneaking up on us. It's hard to imagine being surprised by a wagon. They make a lot of noise as they roll along. Perhaps the young man was napping? Or just not paying attention.
This is from some of the photographs I took this past summer in Pine Dale, Wyoming, during the Rendezvous Pageant. This young man was an excellent horseman and the mare he rode was really nice. The mountains in the background are actually patterned after the Spanish Peaks in southern Colorado.
I think I will do this portrait again - next time without the wagon and with a different color background. Maybe nighttime....overlooking a little cabin with a light shining in the window....so many possibilities and so little time!!!
The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.
