Photographer's Note

a young, lone wild horse minding his business in Cotopaxi National Park.

if you see my other captures from cotopaxi park you will notice, that the weather there is constantly changing. the sky is featuring random "blue" spots here and there, not guaranteed to persist for more than a few moments. unfortunately, the overall light turned quite gloomy when this horse appeared.

to the left of the composition: a piece of limpia-pungo lagoon. in the background: the great cotopaxi volcanoe.

PS. a note to Polonaise. speaking about running with horses, i had to literally run with this guy to keep up. i even succeeded to take this shot, but in the end the horse decided to show me my place... ;)

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.
