El Semental de Fantasma (The Ghost Stallion)

Salt River, Arizona

Limited Edition of 50 Museum Grade, Fine Art Prints.

This photograph is part of the series “Caballos Fantasmas del Rio” (Ghost horses of the River). I found it fitting for such abstract ghostly images.

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, abstract 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.

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 photograph I was hoping to capture!
