From the Back of a Motorcycle #13: Chestnut Shining Yearlings

We live in horse country here in Camarillo, California, and I see horses every motorcycle ride we take, chestnut, white, dappled, black and an occasional bay.

This is the thirteenth post in a series featuring one of my photos taken from the back of our (moving) Honda Sabre Shadow, paired with words I wrote while on the same, or different, ride with my husband.

Bliss touched weather…

Black new calves

and chestnut shining yearlings

It’s a 12 hawk-soaring kind of day. (yes 12)

Thank you for visiting. I wish I could take all of you on our rides with us! Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day. :D  And stay tuned for more poetry in motion.

    That photo is so perfect and serene, it doesn’t look real! Beautiful! Should be a postcard!

    I agree with the motorcycle being a steel horse. I thought I would want a horse when we retire, but our lifestyle probably won’t allow it. However, I am very happy with the freedom of the ride on the back of a motorcycle! Plus, no vet bills…

    Thanks Mary. I also adore the smell of stable… what can I say, I grew up with horses and just love it!

    I never know how the shots will turn out until I get home and look. I’m pleased I got the pony too. He’s a cutie. My iPhone shots are actually better quality with less blurr, but the point and shoot much easier and safer.
    You are so right, the clouds really make the shot! Thanks!

    Wow! I’m trying to imagine that photo without those magnificent clouds, and it just wouldn’t be the same. They really add some contrast and texture. And love how you captured that little pony in the lower left.
