You leave me breathless by Alan Mattison

The two Icelandic ponies,running the full length of the field, playing and chasing each other and finally resting so that they could catch their breath in the icy cold weather.
Taken on a PR shoot for a local stable at Auning in Denmark with a Nikon D700 and a 70-200mm lens with a 17 mm tele converter (340mm)

Dedicated to the song of the same title, sung by both Ella Fitzgerald , Nat King Cole and several others.

You leave me breathless,
You heavenly thing,
You look so wonderful,
You’re like a breath of spring.

    There is NO breath of spring in this shot, Alan! Brrrr! Amazing image – I know you said before they prefer the cold……but this looks extremely cold! Striking detail as usual!! I like the shadow effect of the second horse.

  • it’s a mixture of cold breath and steam from their bodies!It wasn’t really that cold, I didn’t even have gloves on!!thanks Mary!!
