Post challenge: It’s a wonderful morning. I woke up early, at 4.00 a.m. local time (around midnight DPC time). Me and my wife Stefanía are going to the airport to catch a plane to Paris, where we are staying for a week to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. And now the blue ribbon and PB gives my joy an extra punch, so I am already high up in the sky although I’ve not even reached the airport yet!!

I dedicate this photo to Stefanía, my wife for 20 years and best partner for 25 years.

Many thanks everyone for your votes and wonderful comments :o)

Stoppaði við þessa mynd þar sem mér fannst ég kannast við þessa tvo félaga. En þessir hestar eru í eigu fjölskyldunnar. Til gamans þá heitir sá vinstra megin Gosi og sá hægra megin Bragi. :) En titillinn er sannarlega réttur, þeir eru óaðskiljanlegir og nánast ekki hægt að ná mynd af þeim í sitthvoru lagi. Ég er búinn að taka margar myndir af þeim og alltaf eru þeir hlið við hlið.

Glæsileg mynd.

Well done, and great PP. The facial expressions, and head "pose", almost give us the gender of the horses. The sky is great and adds to the dramatic expressions of the horses and their home. 10
