Icelandic Horse




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!
