"Mustang Mood Light"
I have a whole series of photos of this herd moving across the hill where we were watching them, late in the day. I love the rich color in the dust they stir up when the sun is low in the sky, and the high contrast that produces these beautiful less detailed horse shapes that just represent the whole iconic horse image. I spent a day with the mustangs in San Luis Obispo last month (without my camera!) and just reconnected with them and the magic they bring to my life. They remind me to be present and worry less; to be here now.

"Bear's Mares Kicking Up Dust"
Running Bear's mares are running up a trail on a dry summer afternoon, which leaves a cloud of dust in their wake. I just like the shape of the horses in this image and the light. Enjoy!

"Shades of Gray"
I liked the flowing manes of these mustangs and how they were running side by side, so I cropped in on the heads. I like the mystery of "who's behind the horse in front?!" I like the white eyelashes, too! Enjoy.
