Parisian photographer Mahkeo got really lucky while on a trip to Iceland.

While driving, it seems they came upon a horse in the middle of the road and took the following, quite amazing photograph.

Here’s how he describes the encounter himself:

“We were lucky enough to meet a horse in the middle of the road so as fast as we could, we jump out of the car to take pictures of this meeting! It was like a magic scene; the horse was not afraid of us and walk toward us; and was looking for food.”

If you want to meet the Icelandic horse but don’t really want to go on horseback, we recommend our “Meet the Icelandic Horse” tour.

If you want a quick trip and a chance to see Iceland’s magnificent nature from horsebakc, we recommend our Lava Tour.

Or you could just come to Iceland and trust in a chance encounter, like Mahkeo.
