iPhoto @Melissafarlow | Gentle curious souls came close for a sniff. Love those soft nuzzles against my cheek from adopted horses-unwanted mustangs. Many of the 50 from Stacked Heart Ranch are trained and ridden , others are learning trust from the mother /daughter trainers who care for them in Wyoming. Adopt a mustang! Find one that’s been gentled and can be further trained to be a trusted steed. If you don’t ride, Adopt a mustang that just needs a good home. No future for many —Need to place hundreds a fine horses gathered up by the BLM.@thephotosociety @natgeocreative @natgeo @marieclairemagazine #onassignment mustangs #horses #Wyoming #stackedhearts #huckaby

@melissafarlow | Lost in the maze in Vandeleur Walled Garden in Clare County, Ireland. Found my way out to the structured formal plantings. @thephotosociety @natgeocreative @natgeo #garden #ireland

Photo by @melissafarlow | Violent storms moved onto the coast with fury causing waterspouts and hail in between sun breaks. Awesome to see up close when Mother Nature is in control. @thephotosociety @natgeo @natgeocreative @randyolson #oceanside #oregoncoast #oregon #weather #storm #drama

@melissafarlow | Rainbow-almost a double-appeared after a violent short thunderstorm. I'm surprised at all the intensity of weather that seem to appear out of nowhere then just as quickly disappear. Always in awe of Mother Nature. @thephotosociety @natgeocreative @natgeo #oceanside #oregoncoast #oregon #rainbow #threearchrocks

@melissafarlow | Just another castle photo from Inisheer island. This summer while on a NatGeo student expedition in Ireland, we hiked, biked and explored the Aran Islands. @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #ireland #aranislands #inisheer #castle #natgeostudentexpeditions
