In my travel photography there is one lesson that stands out and repeats itself over and over. The lesson is that in order to get awesome travel photos you have to chase light and capture moments. Whether is it a sunrise in Pokhora (see this album) or a child caught in a moment of thought; you are watching, waiting and ready to launch when a ray of light catches your eye or a moment captures your imagination. Sometimes we can start to fatigue a little and we see a great moment but alas we say “I will get it another time or another place” Thankfully my lovely wife insisted I shoot this horse even though we had already driven by. My sister in law hit the brakes, ever ready to help her photo-mad brother in law, and did a U turn. As it turns out the very first shot was the one that worked as the rest were to cluttered with several other horses milling around. I do love this image and wish he was alone so I could try and work the scene further. Fortunately for me the cold snap had not hit yet even though with wind chill and only a few degrees below zero I was cold enough to get back to the vehicle in a jiffy.
