Strong blustering winds shove my car from side to side as I drive down the paved side road. I sense from the cold blue grey sky that snow is imminent. As I fight to keep the car centred in the lane, I am struck by the image of a lonesome horse standing perfectly still in this stormy weather. I pull to the side, put the four way flashers on and step down into the ditch, kneeling into the crusty snow to grab the shot. As I return with the image, I notice that this horse continued to stand in near perfect stillness, barely moving; powerful, majestic and lonely.
