Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Early Evening.
I have been shooting equine photography at this location for so many years. The water is about waist high, muddy, and it’s also known to have sudden drops and holes. I have stayed away from getting in the water due to the fear of falling in and ruining my equipment.
I am never happy with my images from this location, every time before I get to this location to photograph, I say to myself “this time it will be better.” But it never happens.
This time, I did something different. I asked myself, “what kind of photograph will make me happy?” Firstly, the only way to achieve that photograph was to put on waders and get into the filthy water. It was nerve-wracking once I got in the water because I could not stand in one spot for a long time, my feet kept sinking. I was also concerned if the horses came too close, the splash of salty water would ruin my equipment. Though I had all the excuses, I had one reason to get in. Above all, I wanted a good photograph of this location. I worked with my fears, took it slowly, but I did manage to get in waist-high, precisely in front of the horses as they ran towards me and achieved this photograph. This photograph I love, not because of how it looks but because it helped me grow.

This horse was so powerful when he ran I could clearly see he was the alpha male.
The sun was descending over the horizon as I came upon some wild horses grazing on saltwater grass.
Two things could have happened; I could have ended up in the ER or ended up with an image like this one.
