Thank you very much for your enthusiasm Giulio I drove over the moors in hope that I might find some patch of light through the moody skies. It was a delight to see patches of light periodically gilding the slopes around the confluence of the West & East Dart Rivers as I headed east. I found a spot a few hundred yards from here to park and ran to find a suitable vantage point before the light faded. How pleasant it was that the wild pony turned up to see what I was doing! After making the exposure the pony came right up to me to see what I was doing and then trotted off over the moors.

Thank you very much Bill It was a delight to see this warm evening light amidst the rain showers, the pony turning up made me smile and hopefully added to the narrative.

That's a really nice shot Phil...you did well getting that pony to stand motionless for 1 second!

Thanks very much Karlo. I waited for then inquisitive pony to feel relaxed about me being there on its territory, at the same time as considering the subtly changing ephervescent light (hoping the gap would not close before the horse stood still!)

I had my fingers crossed that the pony would stay still for at least a second, lucky for me that he did. After making the exposure he came right up close for a few moments and then finally trotted off over the ridge.

Thank you indeed Mac for your munificent words! It is touching indeed to recieve encouraging comments on my photographic endeavors. If I can invite people into the scene - maybe too, to add their own questions to the narrative of one of my photos - then I have achieved something.

Plenty more of my Phil-osophical thoughts, tutorials and tips on landscape photography on my blog
