WOW! I bumped into two photographers today that told me, “I love your newsletter!”
That’s GREAT! However, I must not be getting the message out fully. Neither of them knew they “needed” to visit the Daily Journal regularly as the month progresses.The notification subscribers receive on the first of each month is just the INITIAL ENTRY for the daily updates for that month.
With few exceptions, I add more photos and comments to the Daily Journal page every day throughout the month!

But the wild ones…With no halter and reins, and their harem and only the open land, wild horses are truly a sight to behold…and to photograph. This past October I spent four days with wild horses on two barrier islands near Beaufort, North Carolina. Each island had two characteristics in common: you could only get there by boat, and there are no people or homes there. The horses are in charge.On Bird Shoal is the Rachel Carson Reserve, over 2000 acres with a group of horses that tends to stay together, about 30 in total. On Shackleford Banks, the horses prefer to stay in harems, groups of one stallion, perhaps one or two mares, and any recent foals as the family unit. There are about 120 horses on the nine-mile long island.Continue reading "Photographing the wild horses of North Carolina"
