I took an evening drive to see if I could find anything interesting to shoot. I had a subject in mind, but the light was not the way I had envisioned. I continued down the road and came across these horses. The sunset highlights immediately grabbed my attention. The scene had a serene mood to it. I started out with my 14-54mm, but I quickly realized that I needed to get closer for the best shot. I traded the wide angle for the 70-300mm. There were more horses in the field, but the three in the frame were positioned with the best composition and light. I really like how the sunset light illuminated the tail of each horse. This light was gone a few minutes after I took the shot. I’m glad I came upon this scene when I did.
