When Cana Foundation asked me if I could travel to North Dakota and take pictures of horses, I had no clue that I would photograph baby horses.
I had never been to North Dakota specifically to capture pictures of baby horses, but I am enthralled by horses and knew that I had to do it. I’ll be honest – I didn’t know how these horse images would turn out, but I knew that I would never forget the experience.
So I took the chance.
When I got to North Dakota, I met with a man named Frank who has dedicated his entire life to protecting and preserving the Nokota horse. His mission and the impact he is also making are humbling.
When we made our way into the rolling hills, my breath was taken away. It was a truly picturesque setting the grass was a vibrant green, the sky a stunning shade of blue, and the hills rolled as far as the eye could see. A perfect canvas for my wildlife art above all!
And then I saw the horses – nearly 200 of them and this baby horse. I fell to my knees in awe as a result! The horses just kept running. They ran past and around us again and again. When I got control of my emotions, I began snapping these pictures of wild horses. I didn’t know how the horse images would come out – I just knew that the experience itself was an incredible blessing.
I spent three days capturing pictures of wild horses, the baby horse, and also other wildlife art. In short, it was three days I will never forget. And I am so thankful to the Cana Foundation and their incredible volunteers for making everything possible.
