Photographer's Note

here, the same character you might have met earlier: this time, he's showing off in full gallop. he was running around us literally like a little puppy. :) what you see in the far background is a herd of cows belonging to a local quichwa tribe. the white spot is a tourist 4x4 visiting lagoon limpiopungo. i thought about cloning it out, but decided to leave it in the end, for the sake of reality.

i was not sure, if i wanted to post this one due to the horrid light. however, the more i looked at it, the more i liked the ambience myself.

general information: larger and smaller herds of wild horses (i guess, they would be called mustangs in the US) roam the paramo in cotopaxi national park. if feeling safe in their numbers they seem not to mind human presence, but smaller groups tend to keep their distance, like the fellow in this foto.

a different angle on the same horsie: this time with slightly different light and cotopaxi in the background [as requested by Henk (Floydian)]. ;)
