This photo was not planned; it was shot during a serendipitous moment when these horses galloped right past me. Taken at Silecroft in Cumbria one evening, my camera was set up on a tripod for long exposure shots when I noticed the horses and a dog in the surf. Hoping they would come my way I was not to be disappointed. The two riders briefly spoke to one another and shortly afterwards the horses set off on their run. The low evening sun seemed to throw a spotlight on them, picking out their impressive features. The wall behind the horses along with the bands of sand and stone provided a great backdrop.
