Untouched and taken with a relatively basic digital camera – nice work.
Another beautiful image by Wojtek Kwiatkoski. He ‘mottles’ out the background to create a more striking, painterly composition. I love his work and it seems I’m not alone. His pictures of horses have ranked amongst the most popular on Picture Post over the last six months.
More of his work here.
Tag search ‘horse’. Great action shot. Worth viewing large.
Buzkashi, Afghanistan. Popular game similar to polo. The riders have to take a goat or more usually a cow calf carcass, ride with it around a flag and come back to drop it in a circle. No teams no rules. It is very violent but exciting. I nearly got trampled a couple times taking pictures and last week I got crushed against a barrier by several horses.
