Galleries / Special: Iceland
The Icelandic horse is a breed of horse developed in Iceland. Although the horses are small, at times pony-sized, the Icelandic refer to it as a horse. Icelandic horses are long-lived and hardy. These two horses were running around, jumping, chasing each other, biting and kicking. I'm sure it was all very playful, but at times it looked pretty serious.
Heavy snowfall created a wonderful low contrast mood, so I decided to resist the temptation to zoom in too much. Usually it's not a good idea to put your subject near the center of the frame, but because this shot is about confrontation I decided that a centered composition would work best.
