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.

1/30/2018 This was the evening of the Super Blue Moon. I was on the river by 4:00 p.m. watching for the horses, none came, I waited. The moon rose and I got images of it over the desert and over the river, but no horses. Then in the dim twilight I saw movement in the distance. I moved closer and waited in anticipation, what would they do? They sky was vivid blue in the hour after sunset, and the full moon cast a soft glow across the river. I waited… finally the horses began to move crossing the river in front of me. I shot from a tripod but panning as I shot, hoping to capture the spectacular scene in front of me.

This image captured that evening perfectly, the blurred yet recognizable figure of the horse bathed in blue light was exactly what I had seen. The only name fitting for such an image was obvious, “Fantasma Azul” Blue Ghost.
