A Day at the Beach

A Day at the Beach

The horses on Assateague Island are "wild," meaning that people are supposed to leave them alone. However, they are so used to people that they'll wander through campgrounds and anywhere else they want. They usually avoid the beaches, but when I was there it was so hot and the mosquitos on the other side of the island were so voracious that they decided to hit the beach.

This was cropped to eliminate some blank sky. I think it makes for a more dynamic image.
