Light and peace

13 01 2023

This was the day of the pronghorns, and while Tenaz was laser focused on those speedy critters (who, by the time I was taking this pic and others, had settled down to nap and browse), I was quietly taking about a billion pix from as many angles as I could on the slope slightly above him. Because … that background! The light and shadow. The bare ground and the snowy ridges. The gentle rolls and the sharp corrugation of erosion lines. The open range and the pinon-juniper forest.

The gleam in the eye of the handsome bay mustang. 🙂 He was even gussied up with a bit of bling in his mane!

😁 All dressed up for his photo shoot! And that low winter light just illuminates every detail in Spring Creek Basin topography, every nook and cranny, crack and striation. Beautiful photo, TJ.

It was so singularly beautiful with that varied light and shade. … And then Tenaz actually stood rock solid for MINUTES! That almost never happens … that the ponies give me so much opportunity to “work the scene”! He’s such a pro. 🙂

Just that has always captured me too! Amazing landscape changing with the light.
