It could have come straight from The Horseman’s Dream: a white colt galloping across the moor while stormclouds gather.
Looking at the rest of the photographer’s work, it was clear that it wasn’t a one-off. His feed is populated with powerful, nuanced wildlife photography throughout. I strongly suggest you go there now and give him a follow.
That night, I dreamt vividly about the photograph and The Horseman’s Dream. I wandered Dartmoor with the horse just like John Muldoon, searching for a meaning. Next morning, I woke up to a kind message, saying I could use it for the cover if I liked.
Bearing in mind that The Horseman’s Dream is about the significance of dreams and communication through them, I was a bit freaked out. In a good way, of course.
After chewing the Instafat a little with The Alphador, he seems like a top guy as well as a supremely talented photographer, so please give him a follow and check out his stunning work. You won’t be disappointed.
Oh, and feel free to check out my scribblings, fixings and noodlings, while you’re over at Instagram.
