This is such a fabulous image ... the light, the warm tones, the details of the forest and various textures from trees and branches to the weeds, and of course, the shiny coat and wavy mane of the horse. It doesn't hurt the image at all that this is a simply stunning Fresian perched on the forest ridge. Nicely done. ~ illona

My name is Sabrina and I am a photographer from Austria. This is also where this picture was taken - in an Austrian forest. The friesian is a young stallion from a friend of mine, one of my most loved models. He is so confident, handsome and he just knows how to pose and the moment was just perfect - even though it was really tough to shoot because of the dark horse, the dark location (between high trees) and with the direct backlight, the post processing helped me a lot to show this moment as it felt. I shot it with my Canon 5d MKiii and the Canon 70-200mm 2,8 - for me a "once in a lifetime picture".
