A Wild Mustang is a free-roaming horse of the North American west that first descended from horses brought to the Americas by the Spanish. Mustangs are often referred to as wild horses, but there is intense debate over terminology. Because they are descended from once-domesticated horses, they can be classified as feral horses. (From Wikipedia)
At present there are about 30,000 wild mustangs in the western United States.

uno spettacolo grandioso che si apprezza soprattutto ingrandendo la foto.
Un soggetto di grande effetto ed un contrasto di colori e di oggetti straordinario che permette di evidenziare i cavalli nella steppa desertica che li avvolge.
Una eccellente nitidezza caratterizza i cavalli che godono anche di una luce molto calda .
Una foto molto ben realizzata.
Ciao e buona serata

A good action shot, in real life
Maybe I'd have cropped without the sky for a closer view, but just a matter of personal preference here

Eye catching Mustang 'foreplay', capturing the action while prancing on back hoofs. And the low level lighting enhances the horses and the surrounding desert scenery.
I also saw numerous wild Mustangs last week while traveling in northern Nevada.
PS: Glacier National Park would be a fine place to do a "Hitchcockian" accidental fall from a cliff

It must have been extremely exciting to see these mustangs suddenly jumping this way in front of your lenses. But considering the cactus all around, I would take it easy if I was one of them...
The warm light is very tangible all over the scene, which helps to provide a cool mood that is perfectly relevant with the location - Wild West at sunset...
You could have easily tag this photo under "decisive moment".

Extraordinary excellent action snapshot. The Mustangs are in superb light, outstanding position. Your focusing is perfect, we can see not only the clear eye but also the surrounding nature and the hills in BG in excellent focus. Well done.

We see splendid the mating ritual between these two horses.
I seem a very big fight the dust cloud behind the horses is very well to see.
I did not know that still 30.000 wild mustangs life in the western United States.
You shows us a nice panoramic view about these mountains too.
Excellent frame and high quality.
Very well composition, good presentation. TFS.

A dynamic shot of the wild Mustang horses in an amorous pose. They animate the shot and make a fine focal point. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the Joshua trees. I am glad the pc environmental control crowd haven't demanded they all be exterminated, as has happened in some parts of Australia. They are after the wild camels in Oz too! Good to include the sliver of blue sky to contrast against the yellow red color hues in the fg. Tfs!

looking at this photo, questions come to mind.
the first question is, from where did you take this photo from? was it from a car? were you walking by? You seem to be very close!!
the shot has action and power, lovely scene.

C'est ce que j'appelle une grosse crise d'amour. Ce sont de beaux chevaux et l'histoire ne dit pas comment ça fini. Une belle prise à travers les cactus mais attention ça pique. Bel éclairage et jolies couleurs chaudes.
Toutes mes amitiés et bonne fin de semaine,

Marvelous moment collected as the two horses played "Mustang-style"...
Their brown color shine with the good light over the willow. Fine photo applied.
Have a nice weekend,
