Thanks everyone. It is one of my favorites. It was worth freezing my butt of following this wild herd up the hill. I have it framed in a 15x30 at my restaurant.

A spectacular sunset.

Behind The Lens

Location
Wild Horse area north of Green river Wyoming
Time
about 8pm
Lighting
sun was getting ready to move behind an approaching storm at sunset. Which I figured would give a great back drop.
Equipment
Olympus epl-5 , 140-300 lens
Inspiration
The herd of horses was on a hill side with basic sage brush for a back ground. I could see the rolling clouds from the storm approaching and the sun about to set behind it. Even though the temperature was in the mid 30s and strong winds I knew if I could follow them to the top of the ridge it would be worth it. The stallion would turn occasionally and stomp his hoof and stare at me . With light fading fast we made it to the top of the ridge. I was able to take several shots before the light was gone and my fingers froze. This one was my favorite.
Editing
Just some cropping and a bit of contrast and sharpening.
In my camera bag
I use a vest this way all my pockets are accessible while I am moving. I have 3 other lenses a couple filters extra batteries and blue tooth remote.
Feedback
The obvious issue working with large wild animals is safety make sure you have enough distance to not upset your subject. In this case the original back ground was boring but by looking where they were going I was able see some great possibilities. Anytime you are on the move having an extra battery in your pocket is important. I don't know how many times I wandered away from my equipment following an animal only to get one more shot and the battery was dead!
