Majestic AM by Stuart Pillinger in Thorngumbald, East Yorkshire, UK

These photographs where taken one morning last winter, just after first light. I often enjoy going for walks into the countryside very early in the morning in winter, especially when it is snowing, I find snow to be such a wonderful thing, how it joins everything together into one flowing landscape, covering what would normally be clear divisions between one thing and another. The winter morning air is so fresh and crisp and it really clears my mind ready for the day ahead. I especially enjoy going to see the Horses that are in the pictures. I think they are such beautiful animals, so big and powerful yet so graceful and calm in their movement and demeanor. The experience of standing in a field of snow in the early morning, with these majestic animals around me was a very serene and memorable one. I feel very lucky to live in a place that is surrounded by nature, I can be in my house, step out the front door and within minutes be surrounded by fields. Nature to me is my inspiration and where I go to think and relax.
