FELTON Karen Asherah of Felton, in Santa Cruz County, specializes in large digital photographs of horses. Her current exhibit, at the Santa Cruz County Building, is a roundup of 24 such images in color and black and white.

Her compositions explore the world of equine, from expansive landscapes sprinkled with horses to extreme close-up detail images.

I strive to capture the individual character, power and inspiring nature of horses, Asherah said. I just want to share the incredible animal pride. I believe in respecting these animals; I want to revel in that place.

She uses a Canon 5D, and her favorite lens in the L series (professional) 70-200, 2.8.

Asherah, who works in social welfare, said she has been photographing seriously about five years.

I just love animal and nature photography, she said.

Asherah said she is now planning on a show at the Parks Department and at Santa Cruz Mountain Art Center.

Im hoping to get involved with a number of upcoming fairs and Open Studio, she said. If anyone is interested, I am interested in photographing anyones horses in exchange for some photo copies.

Asherah said she is also searching my other venues to exhibit her work.
