18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel

A herd of wild horses created an enormous cloud of dust as they were rounded up by a group of cowboys. The spectacular sight, like a scene from a classic Western movie, was captured by photographer Feyzullah Tunç in the province of Kayseri in Turkey. He positioned himself to get dramatic images of dozens of horses being herded by nearby villagers on horseback, keeping them out of the villages. There are multiple herds of wild horses living in the Turkish region of Anatolia, which includes Kayseri.
