This was an amazing scene, and I was so happy to have photographed it. It's not just another sunset picture. It's really about the stallion, with fire in his spirit and a frisk in his tail, looking out for the two mares. I was traveling the backroads of Ohio, when I spotted these magnificent horses standing atop a hill, with wisps of colorful clouds starting to form overhead. With the kind permission of the Amish family that owned the farm, I situated myself in the pasture and started shooting pictures with a telephoto lens. As I reeled off dozens of shots, the sky metamorphosed into a stunning spectacle of luminescent textures and brush strokes. All the while, the family members sat on the fence, watching in amusement, as their cow would sneak up behind me and bellow, causing me nearly to jump out of my skin several times!
