Standing in the rain exudes a sense of surrender. Water or rain can symbolically represent emotion, so this image holds emotion for me; emotion that is right at the surface, raw and visible. I am riding the waves of grief over the sudden death of my grandson Elliott just over two weeks ago. When I thought about selecting the image of the month, this image came immediately to mind.
This image was taken at Western Pleasure Guest Ranch in Sand Point, Idaho on a rainy June 7, 2021. The thought I had when I took the photograph, was how horses simply accept what is. If it's raining, they stand in the rain. I learn so many lessons from my four legged friends. The image has been added to the Fine Art Gallery.
