|horse photography - beach bum|
This original photograph was taken on the beach at currituck in the outer banks, a stunningly beautiful place truly weathered by sun, sand, and salty air.
This part of the outer banks is a protected area for the wild horse that live there. they freely roam the end of the island that approaches Virginia. Although there are houses, and cars...well, four wheel drive vehicles...are permitted to drive on the beach, the horses seem to be really comfortable with all of that.
If you're lucky, you'll see them climbing the sand dunes or hanging out along the shore like this guy...who remained admirably oblivious to me...relaxing in the sun, toes in the sand, gentle ocean waves washing over his hooves, breathing in the salty air...in the midst of all the activity.
My hero ~ the ultimate beach bum.
Wishing you sunny days!
Btw ~ did you know this horse photography is available in the Beach Bum Chix shop?
