Icelandic Horses

One of the goals on this trip was to capture an Icelandic Horse. The mane of these creatures are incredibly long and when the wind blows it take on a personality of its own. This young mare was grateful to have some attention and very photogenic.
I processed this Hispta captured image first in Camera+ and then trying a new filter in Filterstorm. I love the tones in this image!
The weather was much better today. It did rain a lot but we took advantage of every break. The fog at the ocean was wonderful for a while. I have many images I love from today that I will share over the next few months. Tonight I must get to bed early because we are leaving at 4am for the glacier.

  1. Up into the cold wind facing

    In stiff battle harness, chained to the world

    Against the low sun racing

    Bring me a wheel of oaken wood

    A rein of polished leather

    A Heavy Horse and a tumbling sky

    Brewing heavy weather.
    Bring a song for the evening

    Clean brass to flash the dawn

    across these acres glistening

    like dew on a carpet lawn

    In these dark towns folk lie sleeping

    as the heavy horses thunder by

    to wake the dying city

    with the living horseman's cry

    At once the old hands quicken ---

    bring pick and wisp and curry comb ---

    thrill to the sound of all

    the heavy horses coming home.
    (Jethro Tull)
