Our trip to Wales was preceded by a great deal of research, and conversations with locals had alerted me to the regular presence of a beautiful stallion near to our base. This news had got me excited – it would be incredible to photograph a dominant stallion, and what if we could somehow include a dramatic backdrop? 

We found him on day 3, high in the Welsh mountains on a day the sky was filled with dramatic cloud – it was a dream come true. I was reluctant to photograph him with a towering mountain behind him, he is part of this place, rather than just living in it. I decided to try and photograph him side-on, and found the perfect spot with a rolling mountain; I would photograph him in front of it, almost as if he was part of the rolling mountain.

Everything came together in the end. I love the knots in his mane.
