This image was made as I drove towards Mount Kirkjufell at 3 AM. During the Summer Solstice in Iceland, the sun rises when most people are asleep.
Before I even saw this Icelandic horse, I already knew that I had to stop for such a magnificent scene. A glowing, early-morning sunrise across a fjord — what could be more quintessentially Icelandic? Then I saw the horse, and I knew that this was an unbelievable combination.
Perhaps the most peaceful moment of my trip, I spent my sunrise watching the sun rising over a stunning, rugged land — one that is truly unique — as an amazing horse shared my view.
I heard after my trip that it is illegal to own a horse in Iceland that is not of this specific breed — the aptly-named Icelandic horse. In fact, if an Icelandic horse leaves the country, it is not allowed to return! And horses are notoriously difficult to smuggle across borders...
