Early morning sunrise in a misty New Forest. We have free roaming ponies all over the forest, and this one watched me the entire time I was taking photos, making sure that I didn't intend on getting any closer.

She started to trot towards me, had to get back to my car quite quickly, the ponies in the forest can be a bit tetchy, and there was a foal nearby.

Behind The Lens

Location
Wootton Bridge area of the New Forest, Hampshire, United Kingdom.
Time
Early one late summer morning, just as the sun was rising
Lighting
Mother Nature did it for me.
Equipment
Nikon D7100 - 18-105ml kit lens
Inspiration
The mist and the silhouetted pony.
Editing
None, this is how it all looked as I took the photo.
In my camera bag
Nikon D7100, Nikon Kit Lens 18-105ml, Sigma 70-300ml, tripod, flash gun, batteries, SD card, remote cable release.
Feedback
Be mindful of being in the presence of a wild animal. Strictly speaking the New Forest ponies belong to the commoners of the New Forest, but they are free roaming ponies, therefore have a wild nature to them, and like any wild animal will feel threatened if you get too close, or hang around too long, especially if they have any young nearby. Get your camera ready before you approach, so that you're not faffing about and wasting time, and causing any anxiety to an animal. Be quick, and only take a few frames, then leave them in peace. Showing respect and being ready is probably the best advice anyone can give when photographing wildlife.
