Early Bird Gets the Horse

DSC_0241The island was quiet this time around. At least in the way of horses.  Maybe they were inward because of the storm that resulted in most of the island being closed off.  Maybe they were hiding from hunters. Maybe they were just hiding from people. There were plenty of those in the wake of a Thanksgiving weekend.  I don’t really know. I just know that there were fewer to be seen this time than even my first time.  I take what I can get.

This beauty was one of two.  There use to be four of them.  Three girls and the boy.  Only she and he remain.  That seemed to be an epidemic.  A lot of herds that no longer had their original members or all of such.  Anyway, I don’t know what happen to their other two, but these two never disappointed me.  I saw them multiple times on Saturday. Saturday was the only day, but it made up for the day I had the day before.

I was told once  that it takes skill to shoot in the sunlight like this.  I don’t know if I would consider this one in the sunlight.  It was just after sunrise and the sun was to the left of this beauty from where I was standing.  I also don’t believe I have skill as much as I do luck.  I got lucky, but thankfully it made for what even I have to say is a beautiful shot.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

  1. It sounds like a sad story, that most of the horses are gone. But I am glad you got to photograph this one, as it is a lovely picture! I think photographing horses in the sun requires some skills, but patience and luck is very important too!! Just shoot then a lot and you’ll get the result some day 😉 But this picture is great!

    Happy Monday!

    • Thank you! It is one of my favorites that I’ve taken by far. I am hoping that the horses were just hidden away in the woods or another part of the island that I did not have access to. I had my dog with me so I couldn’t hike. It is a large island so there are some places I don’t really get to see, because of restrictions (and this time closures)…so, that is what I’m hoping was the reason. Thank you again.

      • I can imagine it is one of your favourites, it’s gorgeous! Ah I see 🙂 Respecting nature is important, so I understand that you can’t cross the closed area.
