This shot was taken at Local Tent pegging sports event. The specific game of tent pegging has a mounted horseman riding at a gallop and using a sword or a lance to pierce, pick up, and carry away a small ground target (a symbolic tent peg) or a series of small ground targets.

This shot was preplanned in mind. There were several Panning shots on this differently. I wanted to capture it with backlit Golden sunlight. Golden sunlight has added colour and mood to it. In spite of using wide angle lenses, I opted for zoom lens and zoomed in to enhance feeling of movement in it.
I had to shoot several shots to get this single image where triumphant rider has been recorded perfectly.
