Nikon D200. Nikon 18-200mm lens.

Four white horses shot in the Absaroka mountains about 1.5 hours east of Jackson Hole, Wyoming and about 0.5 west of Dubois, Wyoming.

This was shot at about 2:00 pm on an overcast and very windy and chilly afternoon!

Post processing was done using Photoshop (CS4; removed some dirt from the horses backs and darkened the edges) and OnOne Software (PhotoTune 3; added a softening and glow layer.).

    I think that this is extra ordinary .. So completely beautiful with stunning PP and the fact that it is shot from the rear is genius… The manes are exquisite!!

  • Thank you most kindly Polly ….very much and very greatly appreciated!!! These horses do have the greatest hair and tended towards heavy…I liked the “rear” perspective…shows a lot of power!!!!
