Wild Horses on the High Dunes

I made a trip over to Carrot Island this morning. Currently the horses are spread out into small groups scattered about the reserve. This presents a nice opportuninty to get some images of the horses in some environments where I haven’t photographed them before. I’d seen some horses on the high dunes a few times when kayaking on shorebird expeditions. I also knew that the grass found on these dunes might be nutritionally preferable for the animals this time of year. Here are a couple shots from the outing.

A clash of two eras... wild horses, decendants of livestock left behind by early explorers contrasted against a modern ship in the background.
