A rugged landscape but one in which the wild horses in the area have thrived. Going back three years to my first (and thus far only) visit to Sand Wash Basin in northwestern Colorado for this image.
This beautiful horse was alone and working its way across the terrain when it stopped and looked into the distance. A conversion of the image to black and white adds a bit of drama in my opinion, perhaps helps to harken back a bit to the Old West.
If goes as planned, I will finally return to this beautiful place this summer and once again get the opportunity to photograph these majestic animals.
