Ok I know it doesn't exactly look like spring out there, well not in Ontario anyway, but according to the calendar it arrived on March 21st.
So what is the spring equinox? According to Wikipedia: "The event that the Sun is positioned directly over the Earth's equator..." and "There is either an equinox (autumn and spring) or a solstice (summer and winter) on approximately the 21st day of the last month of every quarter of the calendar year. On a day which has an equinox, the centre of the Sun will spend a nearly equal amount of time above and below the horizon at every location on Earth and night and day will be of nearly the same length."
So what did I do to celebrate spring? I found some horses to photograph of course. I was shooting this month's assignment for EPNet, which was to photograph horses and their environment or with their people or other horses, during the spring equinox. The photos had to be converted to B&W or sepia and only one photo could be entered in the competition. EPNet is a wonderful forum that is always pushing us to become better horse photographers.
