Oatlands Point-to-point Races

For the 4th year in a row, the MJLphoto team ventured out into the Virginia countryside to watch the Loudoun Hunt Point-to-point races in Leesburg. Taking place on the grounds of the Oatlands Plantation, the annual event is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, especially when the skies are blue and the temperature hovers around 60 degrees (it has been overcast and/or rainy the past few years).

Below are a few shots of the horse races, the mansion grounds and, of course, one of my boy Nugget (who, needless to say, enjoyed not having to deal with sidewalks and tourists all day). The rest of the set can be found on Flickr.
