Drew Doggett Captures Wild Horses Among The Mythic Beauty Of Iceland’s Landscapes

The magical beauty of Icelandic horses are on full display in these wonderful pictures by photographer Drew Doggett.

In his latest photographic series – In the Realms of Legends – Doggett ventured to Iceland to photograph what he calls the “noble and resilient horses native to Iceland.”

The horses are as deeply rooted in Iceland’s mythology as the land itself and Doggett’s photos capture the ethereal, magical qualities of both the landscape and horse.

Despite the harsh environments in which they live, the Icelandic horses are “extremely amicable” according to the photographer’s press release.

Doggett himself was mesmerized by the colors of scenes.

For one photo he calls “Noble Light” he remarked on his website: “I found this multi-faceted jet black rock face played an elegant counterpart to the white horse who appears to be illuminated by a divine light.”

In another, he wrote, “Running free over a rolling expanse of land, you can tell that these horses have an inimitable bond with their home.”

Ultimately, the series is meant as a tribute to the Icelandic horses themselves. “This work is a tribute to them and the incredible, nearly unbelievable natural elements of our planet that I spend my life working to capture and share,” Doggett wrote on his blog.
