Artist's Description

A rather friendly Icelandic horse that I encountered en route to Gullfoss. Apparently it is very insulting to refer to the horses as ponies (to Icelandic people, that is) and there are a very distinct breed which cannot come into contact with other horse types. Not so long ago, 10% of Iceland’s entire horse population died after contracting an imported illness, which was apparently the equine equivalent of the common cold. They’re gorgeous, stout and incredibly tame creatures reared in the barren Icelandic landscapes and used for both riding and meat.

Equipment

Canon Eos 5D Mark III, Canon 17-40mm L lens, f/5.6
