christa hobart: Don't Judge a Book by it's Cover! - 08/18/14 08:18 AM
Good Monday morning.  
I came across this video this morning and thought it was a great message to share.  You truly do not know who is going to reach out and give you a hand.  Do not judge a book by it's cover.  We all learn that at a very early age.
Sometimes those who have less, give more.
 
Wishing you all a prosperous Monday!

christa hobart: Another Beautiful Lightening Strike in Arizona - 08/18/14 08:01 AM
 
We had yet another amazing storm last night here in Arizona.  It all started with a huge dust storm that just engulfed us and then the thunder, lightening and rain came in.  
I was able to capture a few lightening strikes but this one is my favorite.

Lightening Strikes during AZ Monsoon Storm
 
I was lucky enough to have my phone out and capture some great photos of bolts of lightening.  Same storm yet the sky lit up in different colors.  I would have to say this was the worst Monsoon Storm I have yet encountered while being down here.  Lots of rain, wind, thunder and lightening.  So much flooding but the photo are amazing!

Wordless Wednesday~Working on Lighting
 
This is a photo of my beautiful daughter Makenzie.
 
We were at the Snoqualmie Falls in Washington when I took this.  I've been into photography for quite some time now and am really trying to get my lighting right.  It's time to get serious about a hobby I am truly love.

christa hobart: Oh Why Not~More Wild Horses! - 08/08/14 10:21 AM
So I figured that since I already shared one photo today of two wild stallions why not share another photo from the same day of more wild horses.
 
Again this photo was taken on the Salt River in Arizona.  There were over 50 wild horses out this day all along the river both in front of me as well as behind me.  This is a group (a couple different bands) that were enjoying the cool water in the hot Arizona sun.
 
I could spend all day out there taking photos of these magnificent animals but I had my husband … (6 comments)

christa hobart: Friday Fun Day, Two Stallions! - 08/08/14 09:54 AM
These two beautiful Stallions were out on the Salt River in Arizona last summer.
 
I was down here going through my real estate classes to get my AZ license and I spent much time up on the Salt River while here.  I enjoy taking photos of the wild horses up there.  There are quite a few different bands and it is so neat to follow them and see which horse is in which band and who has had new foals. 
 
If you are ever in Arizona and are looking for something amazing to experience I highly suggest going up to … (9 comments)
