About the Image(s)

I visited a Bureau of Land Management site near Dugway, Utah in 2019 with a professional photographer. The area is populated with several herds of wild mustangs totaling about 500 animals. We spent 3 hours with a group of about 200 horses roaming freely with our cameras while keeping a minimum distance of 100 feet. It was an exciting and awe-inspiring experience. In the shot, the mustangs were engaged in a serious chase totally unmindful of my presence. They nearly ran over me.
Technical: 1/1000 sec, f/8.0, ISO 320, 95 mm.

Nice action shot and yes from my experience they really don't care if your in the way! Maybe putting your life on the line you should have gotten down on your knees to get a more dramatic shot - Oooooh well maybe next time.
At 1/1000 second you were able to stop action of the running yet as the horses were running you see the dust from their hoofs. Looks like some dominate behavior was taking place.   Posted: 01/10/2021 17:30:11
