Galloping On

By rohanps  
I thought this was a very interesting scene to capture since it looked as if the bronze statue was fighting his way through the scrub and trees, and literally galloping on through a dense forest.

History:
The third member of the Latin American trilogy, General JosÚ MartÝ, a journalist and political activist who worked for Cuba's independence from Spain and freedom from domination by the US. He founded the Cuban Revolutionary Party. Assisting in the Cuban revolution in 1895, he was mortally wounded and his statue, sculpted by Anna Huntington, depicts him at the moment of his death. "Guantanamera", a popular folksong in the 1960s, was based on his poetry.
