These are two New Forest ponies who nuzzled in the setting sun. Their auburn fur was such a rich colour that I chose to highlight it against a faded-colour foreground and background. I felt privileged to be able to watch their intimate affection and stood some distance away so as not to disturb them. They stood there for quite some time, pushing their heads together and simply enjoying each other’s company.
