Photography for me is a passion, a mixture of science and art that creates magic.

You already know it! Horses are magical to me. There’s so many of them owning pieces of my heart. Some that I’ve owned (more likely they owned me) through the years, and some that I’ve met briefly, that left a big hoof print on my heart.

The mustang in today’s post is a young bachelor stallion, that I met by chance near Pyramid Lake (NV.) I was walking on a trail near the lake, when I felt that someone was watching me. I looked around but didn’t see anyone. The feeling of being watched stayed with me, but it was not in a creepy way. It was a curious feeling carried by the wind. After I while I stopped, and sat down for a minute. Then this guy stepped out on the trail. I had a light snack, and continued on my way. He tagged along, keeping a distance of about 40 ft. This went on for a couple hours.

He never showed any signs of aggression, and kept a respectful distance. I enjoyed his quiet company. It felt like spending time with a long time friend. You know when words aren’t needed. When it feels like more than enough to share a silent moment.

I haven’t been back to this area since that day, and haven’t seen him again, but it was one of those moments that I will carry with me forever. Magic.

For this week’s challenge, find some magic, and charm us with it.

Have a wonderful week!




PS. I have these photos printed on maple wood, and LOVE them. These wood prints gives any room a warm feeling. There are D-clips on the back of the print for mounting it to your wall using mounting hooks and nails (included). Click on any photo you like, to view available sizes, and pricing.

    • Looking forward to hear about your visit there. My ex husband and I had a private horse rescue for a few years. Definitely something I would do again, if opportunity arises. We had horses from all kinds of backgrounds, some that were just old, and some that came from severe abuse. They taught me so much, on their way to recovery. I’d love to hear about your visit at the horse rescue.

      • It is so heartbreaking that animals have to recover from severe abuse from the hands of humans, the very ones who are suppose to care for them. That must have been so rewarding. When I visit, I will definitely do a post about it. If I am not able to visit, I might just make a post about the organization itself. 🙂
