Nikon D200 body. Sigma 150-500mm lens.

I shot this image on a drizzly morning in July 2010 up at Elisi. Elisi is a remote lodge that is located at the Prophet River on the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains in northern British Columbia, Canada.

These horses were once wild but have been somewhat domesticated by the owners of Elisi. The lodge is only open to guests for a few months of the year but the horses live there year round.

  • Thank you so so so much Glenn…..really appreciate the feedback! I spent many an hour in the wee hours of the morning sitting still in a field so I could get a decent shot without him running off. Finally we connected and it was awesome!
