Action on the beach here picked up pretty much on cue for the horses. Late April brought the hatching of biting flies here on the island and subsequently horses out to the beach. Of course, this is also both breeding and foaling season for these horses. The culmination of these three major events in the horses lives offers the photographer some of the years best opportunities for making photographs of these creatures.
I had the pleasure of taking the stock holders of the Great American Photography Workshops out to photograph these horses the other day. We had horses on the beach, fights in the dunes between stallions, and a newborn foal. I would say that was a successful shoot!
