Stupid Adblock; it never blocked images on this site before. lol Robyn comes home on Saturday morning so it's probably not going to be happening, depending on how tired she is as she's flying overnight.

Cool Down

Thoroughbred horse Infinite Wisdom cooling down after the fifth race at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York on Saturday, August 8, 2015.

Inside the dirt track at Saratoga, there are two inner turf tracks. After races on either turf track, the horses and riders would come out the onto the backstretch to trot back to the paddock. I took those opportunities to do panning photos.

Have not posted nor curated +InMotion Thursday in a long time. It is nice to see other people are posting to it from time to time.

Looking Cool for the Win

Looking Cool (7) with jockey Cornelio Velasquez on board kicking up dirt as they ride to victory in Race 1 at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York on Saturday, August 8, 2015.

I showed you the start of this race on Monday. Only fitting I show you the finish.

I really like how +Macphun Software Intensify Pro worked on the natural colors of the photos from Saratoga. Pulled out the shadows and added a little pop to the jockey's silks, too.

While I won't be at #MustangWeek, I will be at the Syracuse Nationals this weekend at the New York State Fairgrounds. Last year they gave away this custom 1970 Mustang from Tucci Hot Rods so I will be around some classic and muscle Mustangs this weekend.

Been photographing for over 35 years. Man, that makes me sound old! Let's call it experienced, shall we? For most of that time I have been using Nikon cameras and lenses.  Currently using a D700.
