Great see through capture of this beautiful horse Yves. I absolutely love the mystical mood that emanates from this image and how clearly you were able to focus in on his head.. very nicely done.

Thank you so much Heather. One of those capture where the making of it will stay in my mind as a proof that patience with a little skill and confidence that Mother Nature will find a way (if any possible) to offers me those special shots I desires.

That everytime I come to that spot on the trail I expected a chance to shoot that horse. Any other place in his park he is too far or not visible at all. Late in fall I finaly got him on the spot but discovers that no clear view was possible due to fluffy dead plants between us. He was moving slowly so I got on manual focus for a see through shot and manage to (at least) see the head and eye. I was surprise of the result and love the special mood the foreground plants gave to the overall picture.
