I love your pictures. This was is beautiful...wish I could have been there to see those magnificent horses up close and personal. The wide shot and with the blue sky behind them is so very appealing to the eye. Great job! Kudos to you.

Surely, the nomadic Mongolian and Przewalski horses are some of the toughest creatures on earth with the temperature extremes they endure. The photo is beautiful!

Francisca, thanks for visiting the early chapters of An Unfittie's Guide. I couldn't find an e-mail address for you, so I replied right under the question about FM. Thanks for asking.

Fabulous photo Francisca, and a beautiful capture of these wild horses.

I embiggened (new Scrabble word) and those horses are beautiful.

Jacob said...

I'm very impressed! This is such a great photograph. It's stunning, actually. I think if you haven't already, you should frame it and hang it. It is worthy of a museum.

The horses are just beautiful - wild-looking.

Also interesting is that this photo could have come from the high plains of western Oklahoma or eastern New Mexico or even southern Colorado.

Super job! It's my favorite photo thus far!
