Limited Edition of 50 prints

My first trip to the Salt River, Arizona a year before was basically a scouting trip. This time I had 5 days to photograph and I had a mission. I didn’t want ordinary images of wild horses I wanted something different. My goal was to capture the mustangs in blurred, abstact motion. I had a concept but you never know what the conditions will provide. Every day was sunny and warm, the lighting was perfect and I was able to capture exactly what I was hoping.

I decided to name this series “Caballos Fantasmas del Rio” (Ghost horses of the River). I found it fitting for such abstract ghostly images.

1/29/2018 This evening I was watching the horses from the river bank above.  The light was getting perfect but the horses seemed to be only interested in eating. I waited…nothing…Then the Stallion came to attention looking up stream. I looked and saw some domestic horses crossing the river with their riders. They stopped mid-stream and watched the herd. The Stallion called out a challenge and I readied myself. Then he ran, I started shooting…he turned and ran back… my camera kept firing… then four of the mares joined in running beside him as the wonderful evening sun shown across them. I continued shooting panning as I shot. I had set my shutter speed at 20th of a second to ensure the blur I was hoping for. Panning properly would capture the horses in a fluid blur but it can be a tricky technique. I wouldn’t know what I had until later that evening when I loaded the images on my laptop. This one image made the trip worth while! This was the image I was hoping to capture.
