Title: “Born to Run”
Location: Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
This image was taken in July of 2004. The horse, Brought by Spanish
explorers in the 1500s has long been a symbol of freedom and adventure.
Horses once provided the fastest and surest way for land travel, used by
pioneers to settle the American West in the days of stagecoaches,
covered wagons, and the pony express. Today horses are not the mainstay
of work they once were, but they continue to capture our imaginations
and our hearts. It was just before sunrise when I saw these horses
grazing in the field; I could see the ranchers in the distance coming to
round up the herd. I knew the horses were going to have to run right in
front of me, I set up my camera and waited. I was able to capture an
image that calls to mind an age when horses ran free across these lands.
If not for the horse, America would not be the country it is today.
