    On arrival at Jonathan's Lodge in Sehlabathebe National Park, Lesotho our horses took to celebrating liberation from their burdens. With the backdrop of "The Devil's Knuckles" and the afternoons glow how could i not take advantage. Up close using canon's EF 10-22mm wide angle.

    I saw this photo published before. Well deserved, your photo is wonderful. That behavior of a healthy horse sitting, lying down is always of interest to me.

    A really beautiful shot. Almost seems as if the horse is wanting to communicate...

    @Konstantin Sakhin @Byron Inggs  The lighting was awesome and so was the background. After an entire days horse back ride we arrived at our destination in the middle of the Sehlabathebe park, you could imagine the relief of both horse and rider. As we dismounted the horses took to celebrating by rolling around and rubbing their backs on the ground hooves to the sky. A moment that i enjoyed capturing. The horse must of been about a meter or two away

    @Konstantin Sakhin @Byron Inggs  Since i was young boy i've loved and enjoyed the the outdoors and the adventure it brings. The idea of "trying" to capture these adventures, moments and memories of creation is an absolute joy and challenge for me. So i guess like all things you start, if you love it you pursue it.
