    Reported by:

    The winter in Inner Mongolia is very unforgiving. At a freezing temperature of minus twenty and lower, with a constant breeze of snow from all direction, it was pretty hard to convince myself to get out of the car and take photos. When I saw Inner Mongolia horsemen showing off their skills and commanding the steed from a distance. I quickly grabbed my telephoto lens and captured the moment when one of the horseman charged out from morning mist.

    A perfect moment captured here. Loved the position of the whip, the action and I can feel the adrenaline that you captured in this image. The mist and snow flack just add to the surreal feel of the picture. Stunning image !!
