The hardest part about maintaining a blog is I can’t bring myself to add personal content unless I feel sufficiently caught up with the rest of my work. For the moment, I’m not ahead of schedule, but I’m not behind either.
Poplar Place was cold! The pipes froze in the barn Sunday morning, and they delayed the start of cross-country while riders lugged buckets of water from the heated restrooms. Besides the weather, which fortunately didn’t include rain, the show was relatively uneventful. Through lucky circumstance, I ended up standing in as the show photographer. I had to make a few quick changes, but I’m pleased to have gotten some orders, and hopefully good feedback. Check out the photos here. I’m pleased how they turned out considering how difficult it can be to accommodate the winter sunlight.
Sadly, I did have to go after one rider for stealing some of her images from my site, removing my watermark and posting the images on Facebook. I don’t know how to stress enough in order to get the point across that this is an illegal act. It’s called copyright infringement. I’ve explained it before, so read about it here.
I won’t treat people like children and scold you to make you mind. The bottom line is, if I know you are capable of stealing my photos then I’m happy to take a coffee break during your rides.
I try to meet everyone’s needs and I really want people to be able to enjoy their pictures. I offer affordable prints and instant downloads. Low-resolution downloads intended for web use (like Facebook, websites and blogs) are $5. Just $5.

I’ve considered sorting and posting competition photos from 2010, mostly from Chattahoochee Hills and Poplar Place, but I’m not sure how eager folks are to purchase back images. So if you’re looking, just let me know and I can open up a special gallery for individuals.
