This horse is named Murphy. He belongs to my cousin. I once rode him behind Split Mountain, which is west of Dupuyer, Montana.
When I visit my cousin, I like to go out and take photos of her horses as they roam freely across the ranch.
In this moment, Murphy came to the creek for a drink. I loved the way he was contemplating his own image. And here is that moment before his muzzle actually touches the water, there’s a surface tension… a waiting…a feeling of something about to happen. I found myself waiting expectantly for the ripples that would soon form.
