Wild Foal, West Desert, Utah, United States by Jami Bollschweiler

Picture Story

Every Spring, my husband and I enjoy spending a great deal of time camping in the West desert of Utah. New life abounds and the climate during that time is optimal for photography. We spend time tracking and locating the wild horses in this area and we know many of them by name. New wild Mustang foals are being born and we really relish the new life on the range. The babies are very active and really give you a good show. The precious interactions you see between the bands (families) brings tremendous peace and joy. This is one of our favorite times of the year.
In this photo, you see a new foal standing in the last glow of sunset. Getting an image like this one can be difficult because typically a foal is standing right by its mother and you won't get them without a sibling or a stallion in the shot. I love the light and the way it played around the edges of this youngster. Waiting patiently at a good distance and being watchful are the keys to procuring a lovely photograph. It is always a good day with the wild horses and especially with the little ones.
