HORSE PRINT | FATIGUE
Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, early evening. These horses were tired and so was I. They were running from right to left of my camera. The water was high and it was sapping their energy. I wasn't feeling the moment either. I had been shooting horses for four years. Getting the same kind of photograph was no longer satisfying. I asked myself "what can I do to make the next picture better?". My brain was ready to shut down. I knew the horses would run one more time. Instinctively, I positioned myself in front of their hooves low to the edge of the water. Two things could have happened, I could have ended up in the Emergency Room or ended up with an image like this one.
I got lucky.
