Rearing stallion on book cover: white to black.

My daughter took this great photo of one of our stallions, the Australian Stock Horse stallion, Tintaras Chandra (he's a Cremello)...

and blacked him into a silhouette so he could be the cover of my latest book (about kids and their horses in the outback of Australia). I think she did a great job and made it look very eyecatching.

So, if you ever see the book and wonder about the cover, you'll know that the horse is quite real and not drawn or created on a computer - he's just been turned from white to black.

I liked the original photo but once he was made into a silhouette I thought he was just the 'perfect shape' for a rearing horse, something I hadn't really noticed in the full colour photo. I'm glad you liked it.
