Late one evening, in India's Spiti Valley, a message arrived with news that one of the free-ranging horses had delivered a foal. The horse's owner was pleased, but I could see that his joy was tempered. He explained that the horse was 10 kilometers away, in the far reaches of the higher Himalaya, and it had begun snowing. If the foal could not be brought back to the village, it would die—either from cold or from predation by wolves, snow leopards, or dogs. So we all set out into the blizzard in search of the horse. After час..s of walking and yelling, we found the horse, and it took a few час..s more to restrain and leash it with a rope. Несколько picture was taken on our way back to the village. The foal survived, and I managed to photograph it again a few дня.. later. Несколько photograph was taken while working on a snow leopards project supported by @insidenatgeo
