Running Wild with Dartmoor Ponies

In the 1930s there were nearly 30,000 Dartmoor ponies roaming the moors, now there are less than 800. Yet, as you drive through the landscape, they appear, windswept on the horizon, mythical and magical. 

In between bouts of permeating cloud, I waited for the light to appear, for seconds at a time, and captured some of the ponies, majestic in the their surroundings. Shot on the Fujifilm X-T1 + 60mm f/2.4 & 14mm f/2.8. Processed using Rebecca Lily Pro Set III for Lightroom, I've tried to stay true the the muted tones, and the dramatic setting.
