I promised some front views of this life-sized monument to the Horses of The Wine in Caravaca de la Cruz, Spain. I think the sculpture is full of energy. You can only just see the legs of the two runners at the back. I replaced the sky in all three.

Around 60 horses take part in the running of the wine horses, and the celebration is a unique event, which is incredibly dangerous, with a horse and 4 runners going at full pelt. The first to reach the castle wins, but the run is void if all 4 runners aren't still with their horse. I imagine V1 is somewhat how it feels like to be in the crowd of spectators, and apparently there are a lot of injuries.

Pamela.

A wonderful piece of sculpture beautifully depicted in this wonderful trio of photographs. Photograph Number one being my particular favourite.

A most striking piece of sculpture, Pamela, so well captured in this trio of shots.
The expression in the men's faces is so finely crafted and confirms the strain of the event depicted.
My favourite is your V 1 followed by V 3 and then V 2.

Ronnie.

You've captured the details of the sculpture so well. Certainly does suggest racing on foot alongside a horse is very hard work!

Beautiful shot, feel like a stage act. I like V2 most.. I don't know why, maybe it's more dramatic...
