Photograph by Marco Carmassi, Your ShotI’ve been a photographer for more than 25 years. This is an image from my “Camargue Wild Horses” collection, composed of around 50 photos. I took it around a month ago during my trip to the Camargue Nature Park, where I had the luck to shoot these wonderful animals in their natural environment. I used a Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon 70-200mm L lens.

A particularly angry region of the sun has been throwing some strong solar storms toward us over the past week, but there’s just one more blast to weather. (via msnbc)

nationalgeographicmagazine: Wild Horse, Mongolia
Photograph by Chris Neale, My ShotI love the simplicity of this image, which draws you in and keeps you there. There is absolutely nothing fancy about the shot, achieved with a basic 70mm lens. It’s the subject matter that makes it compelling, but in a subtle way. What especially makes the shot for me is the beautiful wave in the horse’s mane and forelock. I also love that the photographer included the open sky and mountain, but without unnecessary drama, showing just that gentle peak and the simple elements of the tree and log.
