I was driving back from my annual fall trip to the Big Bend area during the recent west Texas snowstorm when I ran a cross a pack of wild horses. I drove past them and I had to back up on the snowy highway to photograph them. I spent quite a bit of time waiting for them to stop eating and look up. I’m fairly sure this is a wild horse as i did not spot any markings that would tell me differently. This particular horse was the most cooperative. The snowfall was amazing and I had a great time photographing them. A once in a lifetime opportunity in that part of the world.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark IV using my Canon 16-35mm f/4L Lens set to 400 mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/5.6, shutter speed at 1/2000th of a second and the ISO set at 400. I handheld the camera for this image. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and then completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.

This is a really pleasing image, Terry. The horse stands out nicely against the snow. It brought back memories of some Bev Doolittle paintings I remember liking. She created several with horses in snow, some where the horse blends into the background and others more along the lines of your photograph. Really nice work.
Thanks Todd. It was one of those photographs where I was at the right place at the right time. Love it when it turns out that way.
