Riders Before the Storm

Riders Before the Storm

I was on horseback while I took this picture,
so I had to control my horse and balance myself.
This time, I had to be both the rider and the photographer :)
Part of my "On the Horse Farm" gallery:

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi
1/500s f/10.0 at 27.0mm iso800 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Bravo Sofia pour cette photo que je trouve très belle. Elle est très bien composée: Les chevaux sont au bon emplacement, l'étendue du paysage est bien représentée et le ciel orageux ajoute encore de la beauté à la photo. Superbe!

A very beautiful mood in this capture; it seems so quiet and peaceful
to ride into this light and landscape. Like a dream.
Wonderful composition and framing. Light and colours adds a lot
to feel this special mood. V

immagine di grandezza assoluta ,inquietante ma stupenda
Phil Douglis16-Jun-2008 17:41
I agree -- this is one of your most moving landscapes, Sofia. The oncoming storm, a setting sun, and a spectacular vista are anchored by the three riders moving towards the dusk. The riders are placed perfectly -- the trail begins at the lower right hand corner and leads directly into the first of a series of hills that run to the horizon. It is a wonderful example of contrast as well -- the storm is ominous, yet the riders incongruously seem totally relaxed in its presence.
