Arizona, USA, Caballos Fantasmas del Rio, “La Zona de Penumbra” (The Twilight Zone)


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, 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.

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

1/27/2018 This evening was one of those where nothing could go wrong. The sunset exploded into a myriad of color and I was in the perfect spot to capture images of the horses as they crossed the river just feet in front of me. I was shooting from a tripod and and using a slow shutter speed to allow the horses to blur as they crossed. They came in small groups and as this group crossed I waited until they reached a predetermined spot. The one horse stopped and I clicked as the others kept moving. I loved how this one turned out with one horse frozen in time and the others in various stages of blur as if trapped in another dimension or ‘twilight zone’.
