Citrusdal by ash Citrusdal by ash
One day last February while on holiday in Cape Town I drove up the west coast (of south africa) in a hire car for no real reason except to take photographs and because I felt like it. I did have a vague destination in mind: the warm baths at Citrusdal, and inevitably I ended up driving all the way there (about three hours of driving), swimming for half an hour, and then driving back. I do love that part of the country :) (Smile) I met this horse by the side of the road in the valley at Citrusdal, surrounded by mountains on all sides. He seemed kind of sad in a very gentle way, and when I stopped the car he sauntered over to find out what I wanted. He didn't seem to mind being photographed.

Nice, the blurred background makes the horse stand out more, but .... I'm not sure I completely like the framing... Maybe a little wider frame, including the horse ears, would've been better. ;) (Wink)

Otherwise, a great shot :) (Smile)

I love this, it gives the horse's persomality some depth. My eyes keep following the road in the background. This was very creative! I put this in a dev pack.

weird human quality in the horse can't put my finger on it though.
