Ethology

This year's resolution to blog more hasn't really panned out! But I am turning over a new leaf and hope to write a little every time I add a new collection of equine fine art images to my site. 

Starting as I mean to go on, do please take a look at my new gallery - Ethology - which is a rather grand word for the study of animal behaviour. The collection is one which I made during time spent with Icelandic horses in their various fields, this summer. 

I spent hours in the fields with the horses as they enjoyed herd life. It's fascinating to see them live as a group as nature intended - to watch the rivalries and squabbles, to witness the mutual grooming they take part in and to watch the protective mares guard their new foals against the woman with her camera. 

To observe and sit quietly with these horses was a privilege and reminded me of the simplicity of life in an increasingly frantic world. It's good for the soul.

I hope you enjoy the images. Do get in touch if you'd like to learn more about any particular one.
