Beautiful idea

Terrific turquoise on the cart. Goes so well with the brilliant chestnut of the horses. I wondered how you got the wobbly white edge to your image until I realised that it was a line of snow and the edge of the image was down lower. Duh!!

Too cold for me. But it does look inviting.

would love it!

Magpie said...

Julie's right! The colors are fantastic. Looks like fun, but would need something warm to drink when we got back.

Sharon Creech said...

I don't think I'd like to be IN the cart, but I do enjoy looking AT it. Thank you, brattcat. I agree w/Julie.

P.S. When enlarged, the trees look positively ghostly. . .

We have an Amish community nearby that still use horse and buggy. Of course mechanical trucks and tractors are much more practical, but our lives are poorer with out the horses. They are such beautiful animals.

Sharon said...

That sounds (and looks)like fun!

Anya said...

Yes I will ..........

:-)


I come and we can go together !!!

Small City Scenes said...

Oh what fun--only it wouldn't work out here---no snow. MB

Sunny said...

This is a lovely picture but I think I prefer a sailboat in tropics.
It's snowing here at the moment and more on the way.

I'd love it! Kinda sounds romantic.

Jacob said...

Lovely composition the way you used that snow line as a kind or horizon! Great colors, too, Miss Kitty!

Sleigh rides are fun. I think. Hayrides on a warm summer evening are more my style, though!

Plenty of sun, then it's a 'go'.

Nice to ride in a sleigh. This looks more like a wagon. We used to have a sleigh and a wagon and the horse pulled the wagon but not the sleigh. I don't know why.

Saretta said...

Very evocative, but probably too cold for me in reality! LOL!

Amin said...

I see a lot bloggers agree with
me.

Malyss said...

"on a two horses open sleigh..."and Jingle bells, please, to show how much I'm happy! Ü I'm sure it's terribly romantic to travel this way with one's lover!

cieldequimper said...

Yes please but without the jingle bells. Just the sound of the sleigh, maybe the hooves and of course, the stillness around.

Virginia said...

Merci to Julie for clearing up the white line. I thought the photo was still loading! DUH DUH!

A gorgeous shot. I"m in love with the turquoise wagon/cart and just everything about it.

Re your comment about empty cinemas. That frequently happens to moi, BC. Although this Sunday just gone to view "Precious", Shirley and I were among about 10, and I Friday when I saw "Nine" I was with about 6 others.

I think a hay ride is best enjoyed from afar, so you can take pictures:)

Paula said...

The turquoise reminds me of colorful fishing boats on the water. The color of the horses' coats is just gorgeous with it. And yes, I would have loved to have gone on that ride.

Amin said...

Beautiful place.

VP said...

It would be nice, but no snow here... for now!

valeria said...

Oh...it would be soooo romantic...

Kate said...

A sleigh ride on ANY day would be a welcomed activity. Great shot!

Steffe said...

Looks like a fun ride.

Serge Cornillet said...

Lovely picture, I like the colours, such a good contrast with the snow. To answer your question, maybe to kill somebody.:-) I'm just jocking, thanks again to comment at my blog.
See U,
Serge
