Cuban Horses

The photo above is one of my top five from my trip to Cuba. I call myself an opportunistic photographer; I rounded the corner of a building and there they were. No one else in my group saw them. The man stayed in the composition for about 30 seconds.

The second horse in this post was tied up in Central Havana near a combined flower/cigar shop set up on the sidewalk. I liked the contrasting colours of the reins and halter.

    I can see why this is one of your top five. I like them both. πŸ™‚

  2. I like the top image. It looks a painting

      Yes, I guess it is a bit fuzzy on the blog, but I love the composition and the colours and the feel.. I must look at it again to see if I overdid one of the settings when I edited it.

    Beautiful photographs! It is so wonderful that there is still a niche for horses these days.

      All the horses on Cuba are put to work. I was only in Havana and Vinales but I suspect that in more remote (not touristy) areas there are many more. The ones in the photo were for tourist rides.

  6. I love the second shot .. The contrast is fab, and the way he is holding his head .. πŸ˜ƒ

  7. and I love horses and Cuba…watching some Netflix series on Cuba’s history can’t wait to go back! You’ve captured all of it so lovely Bunty ~ smiles Hedy ☺️

    Without being a photographic critic, you can tell that your photos are extraordinary. They let you see clearly your clean technique for the photos. I congratulate you.
