This might not be art…but it sure is a compelling portrait. This is a palomino stallion from the Onaqui Mountains Herd. Check out his blue eye. I know this one and he’s really earned his scars. He’s pretty bellicose and seems to enjoy fighting with the other stallions. He is an instigator.
He was kind of posing for me and posturing when I shot it this. It’s a full frame shot at 225mm – so I was pretty close. His lip is curled not because he’s showing off, but because he’s processing smell (of all things). Seems the stallions are pretty sensitive to the pheromones in the air ;). Imagine that.
Anyway, this is a great shot of this guy. And really captures his personality. And it can be art if you want it to be.
Get this one as large as you dare…as long as it’s in a 2:3 ratio. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss sizes and prices.
