Another image taken last year during a photography workshop in Iceland, focused on the native Icelandic Horses that have lived on the island for hundreds of years, dating back to Norse settlements in the 9th and 10th centuries. This was photographed on a day when the herd was taken on a beach outing where the ponies enjoyed a gallop through the surf. I’ve applied a little artistic license to this photo to give it a more ‘painterly’ feel. Beautiful on canvas!

Coming At You

It’s been raining a lot here in Tucson during monsoon season – which put me in the mood to feature this image taken last year during a workshop in Iceland. A group of like-minded photographers shared a dormitory at a horse farm near Skálakot, where we had access to barns and pastures full of these furry, sturdy horses. On this day the herd was wrangled down the driveway and country road to the beach where they splashed through the shallows for our benefit. One of our young lady wranglers bit it and was tossed into the surf, breaking her finger in the process and earning a damp trip to the hospital for a splint. She was back in the saddle the next day, unfazed by her mishap.
