Camargue Horses against a storm

By Lillian  
Now the race was on, a very blackening sky and the stallions were off!
who won? well the horses of coarseWink..
the sky was kind to us and only started as we got back to the cars
and the horses on their way home...our last night there

and V2 shows us in our sexy waders freezing as was cold!!

Thank you so much Steve, Cal, Bob, Hugh, Ronnie and Mike for your User Awards

thank you all for your comments

A stunning image. Not just for the subject but also the treatment. The border and the wide format make this an exceptional image. You definitely saved the best for last. Well done Lillian!

Beautiful conversion Lillian. The waders were considerably heavier when we left than when we arrived. The mud was like cement!.

Please forgive Lillian if she doesn't comment on your images or reply to your messages today. She hasn't paid her Electric Bill and has no electrics until she does (just joking...they are working on the power in her area and she forgot it would be off today)

VI is super Lillian as always but V2 is fantastic , nice to see who is behind the lens. Thought you were Scuba divers at first then I realized how cold and miserable the weather must have been and this makes all your images of the horses much more special. You must have had an awesome trip despite the weather.......John

I agree next year it would be good to see you running through the water, or better still saddle up and ride? What a thrill another stunning image

I am not willing to dress-up like a Deep Sea Diver to do so. Grin Grin Wink Wink Eric.
