In the note accompanying her entry for the BCS Winter Photo Challenge, Kate McLachlan writes: After much humming and hawing, I decided that it would be fun to take part in the Winter Photo Challenge. Though as I'm currently working in South Africa, all my models are on the wrong side of the Atlantic, so I went with real horses instead.
I am really pleased you decided to enter, Kate. These photos are absolutely, drop dead gorgeous. Another favorite!
