How on earth did you manage this one.

Great angle. It must have been hard work to get this just right.
23 Jun 2006 9:16AM
Very unusual, even hard to work out how you mananged it. Beautifil light, flowers, sky, horse, angle. get my vote.

Hi Chris

What a great picture - such sharp colours - has a real feel of summer about it - memories of seeing the world from buttercup-height as a kid in the New Zealand summertime.

Excellent photograph and unusual view point. Well worth the EC Awrd. I do fine it a bit dissapointing that an image of this quality doesn't carry any discription of any kind. Would be very useful to know what equipment and set up you used.
