Matai Bay Horses

I jammed on the breaks and grabbed my camera when I saw these horses belonging to the local Maoris at Matai Bay on the Karikari Peninsula in Doubtless Bay in Northland, New Zealand.

Karikari is a long narrow piece of land, lined with beautiful beaches and bays, that reaches out into the Pacific Ocean.

Matai Bay is one of Northland's pure gems consisting of two crescent-shaped coves looking out to the Pacific Ocean. There is a camping ground popular with fishermen and holidaymakers with its safe bathing.

nice photo

Kia ora Janice,
This is a wonderful capture of these horses a serene view, brightness and contrast are fine, a nice composition too, although a tighter crop (from the bottom) might even make this composition stronger. Just my five cents :-) Anyway a wonderful post my dear.
