Mongolia 05 There is a special sense of fit between the rider, the horse and the landscape in Mongolia. As if all three take pleasure in their connections.
This is a panned image at 1/30 sec which has allowed the background to blur, the movement to show in the horses legs but some of the horse to be quite sharp. Choosing a shutter speed for this kind of image is experimental as lens type, speed of movement, angle of movement and distance from the photographer all are factors. Still 1/30 sec is often a good starting point. I will usually use a short burst in the middle of a long pan and will often prefocus.
