Beautifully captured with the horses in full flight.
A well controlled exposure and a good, but dangerous POV.
Very well done.

Many thanks again everybody.
Simmo - I've been up to the knees in water and eaten by mosquitos once or twice if that's what you mean Smile First time photographing horses in the Camargue though. I'll have to go back no doubt.
TornadoTys, once the bites had subsided I guess it was worth the effort.

It was meant as a compliment to your ability as a photographer!

That's a fabulous image but it leaves me wondering how you achieved it! I took some photos of a single horse which was running around me in an enclosure and my friends who were on the safe side of the fence were amazed I had held my nerve as it galloped past within a few feet. I was too busy trying to keep the horse in focus to think about anything else!! How you stood there with a wall of 5 horses baring down is impressive indeed!
