14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Sleeping Horse on a Desert Night
Driving through New Mexico at night can be quite an experience. I'd pulled over to try out my new tripod and decided to do a long exposure of the stars. Thought it's hard to tell in this photo, it was very dark where I was. In fact, I was unaware that there was a horse resting not too far from where I was shooting. Which made for a happy accident.
