Lovely series, Wondering if you called to the horses, or were they just curious of you stopping to shoot?
I just completed a recent business trip that took me through South Georgia. My schedule didn't allow me to plan for any dedicated photography time but I took my gear with me just the same. Turned out I didn't to go out on any dedicated photographic outings but my route took me through some scenic farm country and literally stopped along the side of the highway and took a few shots here and there as my travels progressed.
Thanks! Actually there was quite a bit of luck involved here.
When I first pulled up on the scene the horses were actually much closer to fence along the highway and happily grazing away with their heads facing toward the sun coming in from the left of camera - a lovely composition and great light.
I parked about 50 yards down the road and carefully and quietly made my way down the road, getting my camera set up as I went. But as soon I got in to my intended shooting position and raised my camera they both immediately turned their tails to me and started walking off to a far corner of the pasture.
I kept my lens trained on them the whole time as they walked off just praying that they would stop and turn. When they got in to this far corner they stopped briefly and lifted their heads to look back at me and I got this one shot off. But before I could get another, they lowered their heads and continued walking away. This was the only frame I was able to get.
Would have loved to had a shot with the white horse's head a little higher up so I could see her full face but the shot just never materialized.
