Queen's Birthday weekend 2018, and I'm out of comfort zone (literally!) deep in the heart of the Kaimanawa ranges photographing these beautiful wild horses. I'm still pinching myself. It was one of the highlights of my life...
We managed to get incredibly close to several of the family bands... they were curious, inquistive and trusting.
I was incredibly fortunate to be sponsored by the outdoor clothing company Jack Wolfskin AU/NZ and I can honestly say I didn't feel the cold once! I confess I was more than a tad worried about the conditions as I knew it would potentially be winter at it's finest. We were fortunate to have glorious weather (with humdinger frosts!)
Grateful thanks to the team at Nikon NZ for their ongoing support and loan gear.
And to the Kaimanawa Heritage Horses Welfare Society Inc, NZDefence Force, and DoC, we thank you for the experience of a lifetime.
