I had to kayak from Beaufort to get to this amazing spot on Carrot Island.  When I arrived there were 28 horses gathered around this marsh pond drinking.  Gradually they walked away down the well worn horse path in groups of 5 or 6.  Then the sunset became glorious with two layers of clouds being pushed in from the sea.  I can only hint at how overwhelmingly beautiful this place was.

And here is a small study I made before doing the big one...
