Well done Geoff... always a very welcome surprise when something not quite what you were expecting materialises, and you're open enough to see it...

Best

A remarkable picture. I've come back to look at it several times and it seems fresh each time. That, for me, is one of the signs of a truly great picture. It must surely be a prize-winner. Just got to choose the right competition - preferably one with lots of as the prize .

I've also come back to look at it several times - there's something a bit odd (good odd) about it, and I think I've worked out what it is!

The photo was taken at a telephoto length (somewhere between 60mm and 250mm) - but because of the combination of the composition and the angle of the horses head it almost gives the appearance of a wide angle shot - the horse head seems large in comparison to the body on first look, if you stop and study it then everything is correct - but it's that initial impression that captures me!

Anyone else see it like this - or am I drinking too much coffee again

Regardless - It is still one of the best photos I've seen for a longtime

By George, I think you've got it! Keep drinking the coffee

And then there's that sliver of light to the rear and below the horse, just enough to give foreground depth (if that makes sense...)...

thanks Bill, in all honesty the horse saved the day, up to that point I was struggling photographically.

excellent shot, the horse seems to give a sense of peace to what appears about to be a raging storm.
