Love this shot, Risty! And not surprised you put a gorillapod to good use. I guess you had a filter on to help protect lens from dust?

Oh btw, have you ever shot at that really cool x-country course out in the desert - can't remember if it's Arizona or New Mexico - believe it's called Moonrock? I remember seeing a writeup on it in PH years ago and thinking what fun it would be to ride that course.

Nowadays, though, I think it would be far more fun to shoot that course instead!

Good finish, perfect timing especially remotely and I like the harshness of the light.

Wonderful timing, great clarity, and very good angle! REally shows the power of the horse and the grace of both the horse and the rider.
