I recently had the wonderful opportunity to do some aerial photography of the Wyoming’s “Bighorn Basin”. My good friend Bob offered to take me up in his beautiful reconditioned 1950 Pipe “Super Cub”. I had been wanting to do some aerial landscapes of the basin for quite some time. During the 3 1/2 hour flight we happened to locate a seldom seen wild mustang herd.
The Tatman Mountain herd resides in a very remote area of the basin that has little access. There was an unusually large concentration of horses that day. We estimate as many as 300 horses were in an area of a square mile. It was an amazing site.
I was photographing out of the open window of the plane with a Canon 7D2 with a EF 70-200mm F4 IS and my Eos 1DX with the EF 24-105mm F4IS. We circled the herd several times before heading home and I was able to capture some amazing images.
