Living the Moment

By K_T  
This young gyspy lad was in his element in the water with the horses, he was fearless. Caught this moment in an instant, it happened so quickly I didn't even have time to think about the shot.

There was plently of gypsys in the water, but catching them giving some emotion was difficult. Sat there for hours and only got a handful of shots with emotion in them.

Fantastic, KT.
The boys expression could be taken for abject fear, but as you say he was fearless, then it shows pure, unadulterated joy.
Blooming brilliant.
