Its my pleasure to introduce extremely talented Darren McLoughlin, the tenth photographer to be selected for showcase on the website! Today we feature a spectacular image by Darren of a beautiful Connemara pony galloping across this harsh landscape in County Galway. Its appropriate because this sturdy breed originates from this location and its these local conditions that help spawn the athleticism and strength for which its known.
This picture highlights the connection between the wildness of the landscape and the influential effect it has on the evolution of native animals and wildlife such as the Connemara pony.
This print is available from €45. Darren's gallery has just gone live on the website and its stunning! Check it out here.
