    Now thats something you don't see everyday! Horses next to the sea is a very strange combination and thats exactly why i like it. I was gonna suggest a B+W but you'd probably loose the bottom of their legs in the sand tones. Good picture tho :thumbup:

    Beautiful pic...love the story behind how these horses came to be on Assateague Island and Chincoteague island...apparently they washed ashore from the shipwreck of some spanish ship or something and proceeded to populate the islands. correct me if i'm worng
    love that you were able to get so close. :D

    I think its ok, it's a pity you have one horse behind the other giving the impression it's growing out of it. I also think it could have been framed so ther feet weren't cut off.

    Yes, that story is about right. There is a book titled, "Misty of Chincoteague" that tells the story in full. I live about 2 hours from Assateague. I'm on the other side of the May in Maryland. Anyways, for those of you who think horses on beaches are just very out of place, this shot should ammuse you some....

    My daughter's book club is just finishing that book now. I loved it when I was her age!

    I like the second picture that you posted a lot more then the first.

    Horses on beaches? A touch odd, but great shots!
