I love this photo I captured in the Wicklow countryside on one of the 1st days of my commission to photograph images for the Quest Software fit out. Part of the brief was to photograph trees and as I took this particular shot a very friendly stallion and this beautiful white mare casually approached me. I knew by their movement that they were friendly and just curious. All they wanted was to be petted. The mare at times was just inches from the front of the lens. I took a series of images shooting exposures to capture some movement in the horse so as to increase the degree of surrealism. A large part of me just wanted to stroke these beautiful animals. At times I stroked the stallion with my left hand, while photographing the mare using my right hand.
The image was shot with a Hasselblad H3D back on a Cambo wide DS view camera and a 35mm xl
