Strange and disturbing..It makes me think of the apocalypse..Strong shot!

Kate said...

The snow that clings to it gives the sculpture another dimension. I do not find it disturbing, but, instead, fascinating as an unusual form of sculpture.

Hey, hold your horses! Great sculpture photo!

Sharon Creech said...

Love the way the snow enhances the sculpture.

Dashing through the snow!! Neat shot. I bet it is cold there too. MB

Elenka said...

The snow simply abstracts the image to the point where it looks like a painting. Nice shot.

Methinks I shall enjoy winter with you. ;-) That's a great sculpture, if a little tortured.

Birdman said...

Great image. Love it, signed M. Jagger

It's different but we can feel several things from this sculpture ( as from the ART )and I think it's the intention indeed.
Art is something that people feel in different ways, reflection from your mood in an specific time, and so on...A painting of a rose can be only a little flower but for others it can be love, this is a matter of feeling or interpretation.
For me this horse has some feeling to be strong and survive in adversities of life.
Have a nice Sunday!

Poor horsie, I hope he like cold

The snow on the horse makes it looks even more amazing than it must be. Excellent capture!

Rambling Round said...

Cool!

Jacob said...

I like it. Something from the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse! Scary, and the snow etches out the fierceness of an angry steed...I fully expect to see steam coming from a snorting nose!

As you know we have calm blue horses in Ocala!

Steffe said...

Anya said...

Outdoors, right? Electric or phone wires in the background, snow on top. This is playing tricks with my eyes. Plus, the poor things are going to freeze to death.

The new header is on STL DPB now and the 1,000th post goes up at 12:01 AM Central time.

Very nice composition. I think the snow may enhance the appearance of the statue.

Hilda said...

I like its sharp planes and angles. I hope he's not feeling too cold.
