A Farrier Competition

We recently attended a farrier competition sponsored by the Virginia Horseshoer's Association.  We went to the contest to support our friend, Steve Walthall.  To put it simply, every farrier had an hour to make a shoe for a horse and then another specialized shoe.  It was quite an endeavor, and we were so proud to be able to watch Steve work.   It is something special, indeed!  From a photography standpoint, I've been thinking about trying out black and white for blacksmithing photography because I've grown curious as to what would appear once the most obvious element of the fire was removed.  I like the results.
