Icelandic Horses are raised & bred for... & this will shock all you Horse lovers.....for their meat! Horses world over are bred lovingly as pets & to help farmers, but Iceland, Japan & some South American countries prefer it as a delicacy. We saw these beautiful clan near a deserted home in the midst of snow clad mountains & frozen water stream on our way to Eastrahorn, East Iceland. Spell binding light, magic land scenario, but the harsh reality makes you think about our own carnivorous ways.

We raise many other animals for their meat. Somehow, the bond we have with horses makes this a different issue for most of us--maybe because we do not tend to use cows for work animals (mostly---we do use oxen), or ride them, race them or keep them as beloved companions. Nor with chickens, ducks, turkeys or pigs. I think, ultimately, with climate change, population growth, that eating meat will become a scarce luxury, and perhaps at some point, even disappear.

And, this is a beautiful image.

Great composition, Color, and subject, but feels a bit of fill in flash on the 2 black horses would have help in the overall scene.
As for the Eating of horse meat, I feel it nice when you have the choice in many parts of the world you count yourself lucky to just have something to eat.

Very nice shot, beautiful vista. I prefer those two horses as silhouettes, and even darker, - in line with the narrative it can suggest where horses used to be, rather than are.

Mod1 has this done, - not a whole lot different, and Ive reduced the glare on the horizon a little. I did wonder about the horse on the right walking out of the frame, and removed it in mod2 just for comparison.


Nice work.

Really like the shot, a little dark perhaps but it adds to the intrigue.

I think the comments about some fill in might help here, but overall a really nice capture.
