"In nature, everything has a job. The job of the fog is to beautify further the existing beauties."

A MAGICAL MOMENT IN THE WILD

It was a chilly and crisp Spring morning. There was light but the sun had yet to come out from behind the mountains. A thick layer of fog just above the ground created an ethereal landscape. Not one horse in sight.

I decided to stay put next to the water hole where we had seen the wild horses the evening prior. It was very possible they would come to that same water hole for their morning water.

Possible... but nothing is ever certain.


They did come.

But before the ground began shaking or the noise of pounding hooves reached my ears, one single horse emerged from within the fog, almost as if a curtain had suddenly opened to reveal him. So beautiful, almost unreal.

"Within the Fog" is the first release from that foggy morning and is now available in our

Onaqui collection.
