Watery Wednesday #17: Theyland Stables


"Still Water"
Raleigh, NC - November 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Watery Wednesday

I went to Theyland Stables one brisk Sunday morning last November to take some photos for a friend of mine of her horse and her riding instructor's horses. But before I got a single frame of anything equine, I spotted this pond off to one side of the driveway and couldn't resist squeezing off a few shots before moving on to the main event.Violence Unsilenced

Re:skimboarding
Unlike surfing, skimboarding begins on the beach, with the skimboarder running and dropping their board onto the thin wash of previous waves. They use their momentum to 'skim' out to breaking waves, which they then catch back into shore in a manner similar to surfing. The boards they use are made of plywood and not fiberglass.

Love the brick wall and how you caught the light on it. Nice reflection too.
Thanks for all your nice comments on my new photoblog.:)

My WW is on my photoblog: Carletta’s Captures.

The spots of shadows & light is really pretty! Is that brick on the far side? Is it for the pond bank? It almost looks historical, like from the Civil War, maybe? Or am I stretching too far!??!!

This would be terrific as a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle!
