    Beautiful, haunting, a stark and ghostly image, the horse’s piercing eye staring into you as you stare at the picture…I love the starkness of this image, the light reflected off of the horse’s eye as it bends down to the ground, the other horse standing there in the background…lots to ponder in this image here…

      And thank you so much for adding me to your blogroll. I am truly humbled, honored and deeply grateful that you would consider my blog worthy of being included among such fine talents as are listed there. Your support truly means a lot to me, thank you so much for all that you do.

  2. There’s nothing like a horse with its strength and beauty and gentleness and its mystique……it is the eye of the horse that seems to gaze through me. This is a beautiful photo.

  3. Horses to me are power, contrary to others the hose does not look at me but as we both look in the same direction we are one. Love David.

  4. Beautiful, I wonder what the horse can I see that I can not.

  5. Just watched a movie called “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” about the earliest known drawings/paintings by man in a Cave in southern France (they think about 30,000 years ago). This photo so reminded me of a section of horse drawings, layered over one another as they were added over time.

    This image has that same fading but lingering feel.

  6. Imagine living in a place named “Thoreau”. And in New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment! How could these horses grazing in the snow NOT remind us of the steeds in the Lord of the Rings?

  7. Strange how creatures of such strength can seem so ethereal. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I love horses – one of my favorite animals!
    I can’t believe I got so far behind on your postings.
