The Accidental Model 2
fine art photo Wicklow Mountains
“Equine equanimity, a certain serendipity, with woodland.”
– SJ Mannion
A fine art photo captured in the countryside of the Wicklow mountains. I was photographing the trees when a stallion and this beautiful white mare casually approached me. I knew by their movement that they were friendly and just curious. All they wanted was to be petted. The mare at times was just inches from the front of the lens. I took a series of images shooting exposures to capture some movement. A large part of me just wanted to stroke these beautiful animals. At times I stroked the stallion with my left hand, while photographing the mare using my right hand. All three of us happy as Larry. Once I finished, my accidental model wandered off. It’s times like this I really do love my job.
