I think almost every photographer dreams of shooting (with a camera) a herd of wild horses roaming around the wide field. I must admit, that has always been a dream of mine. Especially, I’ve always dreamt of shooting such scene during the golden hour, when the Sun is low and the horses look even more stunning and in contrast with the golden light.
Not too long ago, I heard of this field (20 minutes away from my town) filled with horses. So, today, my friend Ivana and I went there. It was one of those in the moment decisions which proved to be more than okay. Even though the final part of the route was bit a bumpy for a city car, we managed to get to our destination. When we got there, we witnessed a huge field with lots and lots of horses, separated in herds.
Since it was a quick decision, to actually get there, we didn’t stay very long. Actually, we stayed for about 40 minutes. My main goal was to see if the horses were actually there because the field is their source of pasture from spring until autumn. To my pleasant surprise, they were there.
We kinda befriended a curious little foal that happened to follow us for quite some time. But, his mother turned our way and we didn’t want to cause any trouble. The horses seem to be domesticated as they are okay with us being there. I don’t know what is the story behind these horses. I think they actually belong to a group of people and they let them pasture there during the spring and summer. The photo on the left is taken with my phone camera.
We most definitely decided to come back again with the rest of our friends and organize an afternoon picnic or something. Now that I know such beautiful place is basically at my doorstep, I have no excuses not to come here. Who would want not to come, actually? With the spring and summer still ahead of me, I just gotta return. These horses are precious. I am thankful to Lord for such beautiful places I’m surrounded with. God bless.
