Curious Ponies - Fine Art Print
I captured these rather curious ponies during a brief sunny spell on very rainy December afternoon on South Dartmoor. The ponies’ coats look quite unusual because of the recent rain shower and their ears were inquisitively pointed forward once I started taking pictures - animals often hear the sounds of the shutter and the autofocus.
The aim here was to fill the frame with the ponies but to show the South hams countryside rolling off into the background. I was also conscious of the lovely lighting contrast: Direct sunlight on the ponies, shade on the near background and sun on the far background.
Shortly after taking this picture another heavy hailstorm began and I scrambled my equipment away into waterproof bags!
