The Photography of Claude Steelman

Untamed Spirit

Untamed Spirit 150

I am in the middle of nowhere, searching the horizon for a herd of mustangs. Nothing. I trudge on, wishing I had brought more water. Still nothing. Suddenly, almost magically, they appear. In the windswept high desert of Wyoming I photographed a wild black stallion. From the first time I saw him I knew he was special. He exuded strength and beauty like no other animal I have ever encountered. Of the hundred or so pictures I was able to get, one stood out. I consider the image of this untamed spirit to be among the best photographs I have ever taken.
