In our new Through my lens section, a photographer describes what it was like to be in the moment, capturing an experience framed and frozen in time
Travelling near Gullfoss in Iceland in the summer, I came across a group of horses huddling together, sheltering their faces from the strong, cold winds.
Slowly, carefully, I approached the fence. As I got closer I could hear their deep breathing, and the shuffling of their hooves in the mud. Their acceptance of me was quite remarkable; they didn’t flinch or move at all, they just observed.
I crouched right within the group and took this image inches away from the horses either side.
It was one of many remarkable moments on that trip.
