135mm – f/11 – 1/250 – ISO280

I ran into this cute horse during a hike in the Alps in Saanen, a small village near Gstaad in Switzerland. The horse had a beautiful wide view of the Alps of the Bernese Oberland. I used a small aperture for this shot (f/11), but not too small to make sure that the Alps in the background stayed a bit blurred.

    Funny question 🙂 As far as I know yes. It’s small and hairy, but still it is a horse.

      It looks like a Shetland – rather out of place there!

      it looks a bit typical given the surroundings, but you see a lot of these little horses (probably Shetland pony) here in Switzerland.
