Canon 1Dx w/Canon 70-200mm f/2.8, Canon 300mm f/2.8, Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 and Canon 14mm f/2.8 with Canon 600EX-RTs and Speedlite Speedboxes. During the session I tethered to a Ipad using the Shuttersnitch app nestled in a totally convenient Think Tank Pixel Sunscreen Pop Open Sun Shade Version 2.  I also used Speedlite Speedboxes on the Canon speedlights.

Well Here We Are

I did not think even less than a year ago that I could bear the thought of not waking up to whinnies, oinks and moos every cherished morning. Not to mention baas and barks……After a bit of subliminal coaching from my friend Sue, I finally came to realize the true reality was that as long as my pets were happy and healthy, I could handle the transition just fine. But how could I wish for someone crazy enough to want to care for this mangy menagerie and what would it cost? I did not want to sell some and farm the rest to places all over Texas, knowing that I would never be able to see them all…I have had enough animals dumped on me through the years and there is no way I would burden someone with such a chore. My most favorite eye candy is our two rowdy Longhorns, Cactus Jack and Mesquite Joe. Initially I could not fathom what my life would be like without the sight, sound and smell of them and their fellow pasture ornaments. “But don’t you want them to be with someone who can take better care of them?” came the subtle hint from Sue. I knew it was reality, but it took a while to sink in. This was especially true at that point, because we still had no clue who that someone was….EVERYONE who had a tenth of an acre wanted these two bovine beauties…..Wonderful people wanted them. In fact, they were the only ones who were welcome to stay at the ranch. Image
