This beautiful paint (I know, you can't tell due to the porcelain filter ) was grazing beneath some oak trees. He looked at me at just the right time.

I based the title on this:

Many ufologists who were striving for legitimacy ignored William Minton Cooper, author of "Behold A Pale Horse," yet he became a popular speaker on the UFO lecture circuit, and expanded his account into the book.

Cooper is perhaps best known for this 1991 book which details many of his claims about various conspiracy theories. The title is from the Bible, Revelation 6:8: "And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him." The book includes the text of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, a famous anti-Semitic hoax document.

Written after Cooper had been a member of the US Naval Intelligence Briefing Team of the Commander in Chief of the United States Pacific Fleet, Behold a Pale Horse details Cooper's claims about the influence of UFOs on the US government, the New World Order, the assassination of President Kennedy, and the Apollo Moon landing

This ghostly feller holds his own mystery without me having known the specific book. Fascinating story - thanks for sharing it. I'm gonna go find me a porcelain filter now ;-) (that's different from the porcelain god, I hope)

Very nice photo but the border spoils it imo.

Pretty pic, and one you should show proudly. But it doesn't connect to the challenge at all for me. 4.

Lynne? A nicely done high key image but low on the M&M feel to me. 5

I see a very very high key/faded photo of a horse, not sure where the magic or mystery is.

Love the picture, but the border is distracting.

a beautiful capture - but not sure how it fits into the challenge. I doubt your score will really reflect the talent here due to that.

Perhaps just a bit too pale? JMO
