Retrospective & Introspective

Sifting through some old horsey pictures for a friend and came across this one again. I make no apology for repeating an old favourite. Mind you, I've just realised the front page is a little dominated by black & white, so for some more colour, here's the retrospective part two.

That jacket strapped to the saddle has always bothered me about this shot, but when you've been caught in a Montanan hail storm on what had been a t-shirt-is-all-you-need May afternoon, you'll never make the same mistake twice.

As the rain pours down again across many parts of Britain, my thoughts go out to all those dealing with the resultant mess. I'm convinced the increased flooding each year is due to changes in our land management, but it's not an area I understand much about. And, like many other social, economic, urban and rural problems in England, preventative action and long term solutions, seem to be lacking.

Time for 'Change' over here too I think.
