Photographer's Note

The horses in the foreground give some context to the Mont Aiguille. Located in the Vercors National Park, the area south of the mountain is a vacationland devoted to hiking and many other activities. Riding horses is very popular.

I had a “shocking” experience photographing these horses: I walked up to the fence and the horses came over to greet me. As I reached out to pat them, I apparently contacted the electric fence, causing a jolt of electricity to travel from my hand to the horse’s head. It was quite a jolt and we all jumped away. The horses were startled and continued to trot around the rink. It made for an “action” photo, but trust me, the electric shock was significant!
