The Sine Saloum is a really beautiful and peaceful area near the Petite Côte, where two rivers meet. Formed by beaches, mangrove swamps, dunes, salt wells and little islands, it's a wonderful place to rest, to watch the many bird species that can se seen in the area or simply explore the area and watch the daily life of the locals.
Near a little village where we stayed, the boys usually take the horses by the end of the day, so that they can have a bath, something they seem to enjoy in the hot days. A real moment of joy for all!

Nice light in this action shot. The horse is not exactly a Lusitanian but it looks good in the scene, among those boys.

A very nice scene of life of these people having some fun while giving a bath to the horse (and to themselves by the way!)
have a nice day, best regards

beautiful scene in which these wild boys seem to enjoy it as well do something useful, splendid details...

This is a delightful photo showing the horse and the boys obviously equally enjoying the water. I like the blue and dark tones, the well captured splashing water and the shape formed by the group. Sharpness and exposure are excellent.

Bathing time! the horse and his master & friends! It's beautiful daily life shot which epitomises the traditional way of life in rural Senegal perhaps a common scene here. Wonderful rich colors, the action in warm side light and at the end of the day makes this shot looks subtle and the frozen water splash even makes this looks better. A lovely shot, Congrats

per apprezzarne tutta la bellezza bisogna aprirla e non limitarsi alla miniatura che potrebbe ingannare.
Ed allora si ha modo di apprezzare il sottile gioco d'acqua che avvolge il soggetto e ne immobilizza i movimento.
Un gioco di ragazzi che ha il suo grande fascino e trovo molto più bello di tante foto di viaggio nelle quali la realtà è fredda e standardizzata.
Nella tua al contrario si avverte tutto il calore della popolazione e la rappresentazione della vita di tutti i giorni.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

A good decisive moment of the splashing water and excellent clarity and sharpness. The minimalist color works well and this image would transfer well to b&w. Well frame and composed with good graphism against the bg water. The horse looks a little underfed! Have a great weekend!

Your eye and a sense for the moment are again drew up a great photo.

Fantastic moment collected, kids at sea caring also for their horse, all seem to enjoy a dip on calm water.
Well taken the pic. while they were constantly moving, good sharpness. Lovely scene.
Bom fim de semana,

This is a great scene, so full of life and I would say this is a joyous moment indeed to witness. The horse looking right at your camera makes a special element of magic to the shot too. Really nicely done.

the joy of movement, playing in the water, sharing work and play, is very evident in this wonderfully captured action scene. This must be a characteristic daily life scene in rural Senegal and the excellent clarity and illumination of your picture allows us to enjoy it too. You've filled the frame with interest, the textures and the colours are very appealing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,

ficou muito bonita esta foto com o animal rodeado de meninos. gosto do senso de liberdade e movimento que a imagem passa. belo trabalho.
me removeram uma foto ontem e estou chateado, dizem que era um assunto banal, se a gente for analisar bem, tudo é um assunto banal, a não ser uma vista de marcianos caminhando de sunga na praia.
