On the trail with Ted.

One of the best parts of photography is encountering candid, unscripted moments.  Being ready for them is, of course, helpful.  And that's what happened today as Kelsey and I photographed handsome, 15-year old Ted and his family near FlatTop Mountain and then on some horse trails along the mid-Hillside area.  Two horses happened along during the session.  I saw the riders waiting for me to finish a shot and then we moved off the trail.  At that moment I realized that the dogs would probably be interested in watching the horses trot on by.  I positioned myself with Ted in the foreground and let the scene happen by itself.
