This is my daughter and her horse Luke. I made it while they were competing in a dressage competition.

It is one of my favourites images of them.

The picture wasn't pre planned, but as it happened I did imagine it in the contrasty monochrome treatment. The exaggerated veins seemed to emphasize the horses power and the fact that he was listening to her talked of teamwork.

Once I had seen the potential and imagined the final result the rest just happened.

The picture is popular with my daughter and her friends. I have been asked several times to “take a picture like the one of Luke” . But, although I have made similar ones, I have not managed to get one of another horse which is quite as successful. Pre-planning seems to destroy the magic.

Sometimes images happen when they are meant to happen ….

  1. Capturing that moment in time never to be repeated, that’s what you have achieved, great shot, full of emotion & expression, the horse is a wonderful animal, they are the mirror of who we are & sometime we dont like what we see? Scott:)
