Take a break

06th September 2010
Do you remember the ad long ago for Kit-Kat. A photographer is trying to photograph bears at a zoo, the bears refuse to come out of their den until he stops for his cup of tea, as soon as he does the bears come out of the den and dance around behind him, only to return to their den when he returns to his camera.

I took this picture a couple of days ago. I had composed everything and hoped the two horses would wander into the picture , the horses were out of frame to the left. I waited and waited but they remained out of shot. I did a few pictures without them and decided I could wait no more, I put the camera back in the car and had started the engine when suddenly the two horses galloped up towards the tree. I grabbed the camera and leapt out of the car ( well leapt may be an exaggeration ) and took three pictures as they ran back down the hill. I waited another ten minutes but they did not repeat, not even when I sat back into the car!
