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

The pain of the artist is felt and the image must have been worth every nibble from the mozzies ! Super shot.

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.
