Summer Breeze

I am a true horse lover and former rancher. I owned thoroughbreds and have always marveled at their speed and athletic power. A friend owned this mare and competed as a three day event rider. One early summer day I accompanied my friend to the field where she had turned her mare out. I heard the thunder of the hooves before I saw the horse.I lifted my camera focused quickly on a spot and prayed she would run through. She did and this is the result of that powerful moving moment. My Nikon FE2 with removable motordrive, Fugi film, no filter and my zoom 28 to 85 mm lens on 28mm.
