Wild Horses, Fog and Minimalism


Although it may appear simple at first, minimalistic photography can be very complex and subject to different interpretations. Some key elements in this form of photography are negative space, powerful composition and isolation. Balancing how many elements to include and how many to exclude from the frame without losing impact is the key.

On this crisp cool morning in the Onaqui Mountains of Utah, a minimalistic scene unfolded in front of me as wild horses came from within the fog one by one. An ethereal vision presenting itself before the ground began to shake and the noise of pounding hooves reached my ears.

"Within The Fog II" is part of our Onaqui collection and the second release from that foggy morning - now available in the online gallery. If you missed the first release, you can read about it here.

Framed prints, canvas and Plexiglass options available upon request.
