Funny thing is, guess what lens I used? Big prime, latest zoom? Nope, raggy old 24-105.

Hi Mick, your Horse shots are about as amazing as Gary Samples Eagle shots, I have to say some of the Best I've seen, the previous one you posted some time back of all the horses charging straight at you was just stunning, the first one in this set also, stunning.

Do you mind saying where you shot these, I'm assuming the US somewhere, I'm looking to come that way 2014 to shoot Gary's Eagles, this Lake would be a starter as well.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

Thanks everyone. They were taken in southern France in the Camargue region. I was really happy and the old lens did a great job. Sure the newer new got a few more keepers but it shows you the old lens are still excellent.

Lovely pictures!

As to littlewildcat's submission, personally, I prefer this end of a horse - less danger of being kicked.

Going by the superb images you posted here, I think you will win the competition ... Good luck & all the very best ... in the words of Bryan Peterson "till then You Keep Shooting".
