Story Behind the Image:

The Tempest is one of the last plays written by the great William Shakespeare around the time of 1611. It tells of a ship at sea, caught in a tempest (storm), and run aground on a remote island, where the passengers, a sorcerer Prospero and his daughter become stranded. The play evokes the spirit of enchantment and magic on the island.

The two wild horses in this Sable Island version of The Tempest represent the playful spirit of the horses on this remote Canadian island also known as the Graveyard of the Atlantic because of the hundreds of ships that have failed to safely navigate her treacherous shoals. The image was captured early one morning as the fog-enshrouded island lifted its veil to reveal horses wandering along the tideline. Two of them began to play and circle one another, twisting and turning down the beach, themselves resembling a small storm of flying mane and sand.
