The Rider

Excellent capture and at just the right lighting conditions. The sun is focused on the rider and horse and just the right intensity and time. Nice background lighting. Was this a deliberate planned shot or did you just happen to catch them as they rode by? #274009

Thank you all for your gracious comments. To answer Allan's question about this being a planned shot. It was semi planned. I did plan the time of day and I have a friend who owns and rides this horse and I asked him to let me photograph him. I wasn't sure about what type of terrain our location would provide so the angle and exact location of the shot was somewhat of a lucky venture but over all I had quite-a-bit of control over the situation. If you want to see other shots of this same shoot you can find them at under "Equestrian & Cowboy". Thank you again.
