These wild Welsh Mountain ponies were grazing quietly in the Brecon Beacons while I took some pictures of them then a farmer on a quad bike came from nowhere and spooked them, so naturally I kept on shooting Wink

Many thanks for looking

The movement adds to the effect.......manes and tails flying out: and the group so nicely lit against the shadowed hillside.
Fine shot of the ponies.

Not often that an interruption works so well for the photographer Mari, special action here and lovely subtle mountain light. There's a space somewhere for this one on a nice wall.

Thanks everyone Smile

Funny you should say that Dougie, i've already had two orders for the pic and my daughter has a lovely big canvas of it on her wall (she loves horses). Smile

Ah love this one!!! You must have done a bit of trekking to get up there. Beautiful shot, my favourite subject on earth, horses, - and you've captured their wildness, freedom and the landscape beautifully - gorgeous! Kerry
