These horses were such fun to watch and track. I parked my truck and started walking on the range to try and get the horses comfortable with my presence so that the skittish colt would come out from behind its mother. It took quite awhile.
I was crawling over barbed wire fence, carrying a tripod and all of my gear through the brush and stickers and was hoping for a good shot. And then the opportunity arose when the mother and colt came together and stared at me for about one second. That was the only opportunity. I was very pleased to capture this image.
Vermillion Cliffs is located along the Colorado River upstream (northeast) from the Grand Canyon towards Utah. This area is north-central Arizona, which is almost five hours from Scottsdale.
Over the next two weeks I will be showing you photos from my photography class. I think you will find some of them quite interesting, including the slot canyon photos from Secret Canyon, outside of Page, Arizona.
