6. We went to see the Clydesdales at the Bud brewery.

My wife was off admiring the horses and beer wagon, and I got sidetracked by one of the big transport rigs.

Later that evening, while I was processing the photos, she was like "Did you get some cool shots of the horses?"
"...umm..."

8. That is a lot of color!

And they are so clean! I like the second one the best. All the reflection and distortion...and color!

9. It is a lot of color.

I also like the second one best, but I included the other two images for context.

Edit to add: I used a Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 G lens. Less than $200, but it consistently produces very clean, sharp images.

10. Was that a horse trailer or???

I am wondering at the green and yellow lines, not familiar with that coding on the hookups. The red and blue are air lines the rest are electrical so I am curious as to what extra electrical works all that extra power is for.



ETA: This is a "show truck" and those are almost always absolutely immaculate, no grease on the hoses and all shiny parts are always shiny. Nice pictures! Very colorful.

11. Yes, one of the transport trucks.

Here is a video, not from the event we went to, in which you can see how the horses are stalled inside:




This is a blurb from the Anheuser-Busch site:

Transport: Ten horses, the famous red, white, and gold beer wagon and other essential equipment are transported in three 50-foot tractor-trailers. Cameras mounted in the trailers are connected to monitors in the cabs that enable the drivers to keep a watchful eye on their precious cargo during transport. The team stops each night at local stables so the “gentle giants” can rest. Air-cushioned suspension and thick rubber flooring in the trailers ease the rigors of traveling.

Still not sure about the yellow and green lines...something to do with environmental controls, perhaps?

Looks like the photo contest is moving right along. They always seem to take awhile to fill up.
