Artist's Description

The Wild Hunt is an ancient folk myth prevalent across Northern, Western and Central Europe.
The fundamental premise in all instances is the same: a phantasmal, spectral group of huntsmen, with horses and hounds in mad pursuit across the skies or along the ground, or just above it.
The hunter may be an unidentified lost soul

And it is said that seeing the Wild Hunt was thought to presage some catastrophe such as war or plague, or at best the death of the one who witnessed it.
Mortals getting in the path of or following the Hunt could be kidnapped and brought to the land of the dead.
Others believed that people’s spirits could be pulled away during their sleep to join the cavalcade.

This piece was created using a Nikon D90, Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro at f8 1/2
