Quick Shot: Three Ladies

One of the photos I wanted to get while at Assateague Island was that of a herd of horses together on the beach. Unfortunately, the horses never face the same direction (one will always turn around and show you his butt as soon as the others all turn to face you!). 

I decided to isolate a group of three female horses that were standing aside from the herd and focus on instead shooting them as a group. Luckily, they had their back to the ocean so I could really capture the story of wild horses standing on the beach. 

Even luckier, they were facing into the sun during sunset, which cast a soft warm light on their faces. 

I waited until the gesture was perfect and made only one click - that's all I needed.
