Hello friends and colleagues, today I invite you to walk in a carriage through the fair in my town, a beautiful imaginary walk in this beautiful carriage pulled by two beautiful white horses, driven by a coachman with green coat and hat, at last a walk worthy of kings, hope you like it, then some letters on the show.
The Horse Fair is a fair held each May in Jerez de la Frontera (Andalusia, Spain).
International Tourist Interest by the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade, it comes along with Easter one of the largest and most important festival in the city.
It arose from equine trade in the Middle Ages, in which farmers gathered to close deals.
A document with the September 13, 1481 and specify the location of the origins of the show: from the Puerta del Real to Calle Francos, including the Plaza de la Yerba.
The current fair born of the union of the cattle fair Dehesa de Caulina and fun fair open to the public in 1903.
For many years of the twentieth century was one of the two fairs that were held in Jerez next to the Harvest Fair in September, currently held under another format.
The Horse Fair is held held week after the April Fair in Seville (which in turn is held depending on Easter) and before the Rocío Pilgrimage. During the holidays and weekdays, (the show usually has a duration of seven days, although in recent years has gone on to incorporate nine previous weekend) parade horses with their riders, as before, are still sold. Throughout the week, only during the day, there is a big parade of carriages by the central streets.
The Fair currently being held in Hontoria Gonzalez Park, a park that combines albero with large areas of garden parties. The main gate of the park is used as the cover of the Fair.
The Fair now has over 250 booths, each with its special atmosphere and culinary specialties
Most of the booths competing in pageants best cover and best decoration.
Typical Drinks Fair Jerez are fragrant and fine wine, the less purists like to mix the latter with soda lime, known as rebujito combination.
The most usual daytime attire Fair is the short dress, if mounted on horseback, and tight (or flamenco dress) for women, and label media overnight.
The cuisine is varied, but focusing on fried fish and stews, such as oxtail, the thistles esparragás, menudo, cabbage Jerez and of course the best seafood and pork.
The booths are all different, and often made of material (no curtains, as in other fairs of the environment). Handle their management groups in the city (companies, guilds, associations, etc.), who use it for funding either through direct use or giving this to a professional.

A marvelous yet another photo of the horses-carriages in the horse-fair, in Cadiz.
Great clear image, fine elegance of the carriage-driver, and good view of the surrounding area. Stunning white tail of the horse, combed immculately.

It looks very elegant this carriage and pair. A splendid way to explore the city on a hot afternoon. A well presented image with good light, colours and sharpness. Very interesting note as well.

Beautiful carriage, and well cared for by its owner, that much I can tell. I would say the driver here is very proud to be associated with this fine vehicle, and of course those beautiful white horses. The length of their tales is amazing! Thanks for a great shot and note.
All the best

Very nice, tight frame. I like it here particularly good mood and wonderful colors shown in dark tones. Nicely saturated colors and well exposed images The lights make this very plastic.

this one caught my attention because i've never rode in a carriage like this before :)
I like the contrast of the dark carriage and the stark white horses in the front.
and who can resist the large top-hat.

Hello Angel. Such vehicles have a lot to do with romance and nostalgia. Nice that you can still admire today such carriages. In this country go especially wedding couples with such carriages. I like the informative text.

osservando le tue foto si colgono appieno tutti gli aspetti più o meno noti dell'Andalusia.
Ed anche questa immagine non fa eccezione.
Le carrozze che tanto fanno parte del paesaggio della regione appaiono in tutta lo loro magnificenzae creano un simpoatico quadretto che invita a visitare la regione.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
serp2000 (33061) 2013-08-17 9:24
I like the Jeres wine too. Your photos are very provocative to me and I hope to visit Andalusia next visit to Spain. Attractive picture, it brings me from my work place to far countries again. TFS!

mirosu (8046) 2013-08-18 23:26
You've done a great job with the composition, lighting and clarity. There's delightful depth, the picture is very rich in interesting details, the colors and the light & shadows are very appealing. The nice picture framing is a very good and effective idea.
Excellent horse carriage photo. Greetings, Miro.

Has ubicado al carruaje de la mejor manera para plasmar en una imagen la invitación con la que inicias la nota.
Muy buena foto por la luz y la profundidad de campo, que aporte detalles en todos los planos.
Un saludo grande desde Buenos Aires y que tengas una excelente semana!
ourania (18532) 2013-08-19 9:27
I like very much the angle and perspective you chose for this composition, how aptly you've adjusted the frame to the elegant carriage and how interestingly it's outlined against the brilliant colours that surround it. A very vivid and inviting picture with beautiful light and lovely atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Una foto muy bonita, con esta calesa en primer plano, con los dos magnificos corceles en color blanco, bonito fondo con las fachadas de las casetas, no debia ser hora punta... pues no se ve mucha gente.
Muy buena nitidez y luminosidad.
Pasa una buena noche.
Saludos muy cordiales.
P/D. Pues como decir por alla abajo, llevamos ya una buena "jartá" de calor, aqui estamos sobre 36º - 37º, menos mal que por la noche, baja a 16º-18º, esperemos que ya sean los ultimos coletazos, a principios de Septiembre bajo a Almuñecar y no me gustaria achicharrarme.

Nice way for a promenade with my girl friend
Very good lights ambiance well balanced with shades

You make me feel as a king of the early 1900, to the point of getting on board the carriage for a tour around the fair, greeting poeple bowing at me!
An intense impression of by-then is convied by the absence of modern artefact.
See you soon!
ChrisJ (91200) 2013-09-09 5:10
Effective tight framing on the horse and carriage with the driver well positioned in the frame. Good sharpness & excellent color and saturation. The strong sidelight has been well managed. Superb density and shadow detail. The diagonal axis of the carriage adds dynamism. Tfs!
NorthernLight (1131) 2013-10-16 13:49
this photo you've captured cleverly. I have the feeling that the horse carriage is waiting for me.
In addition, like most of your pictures this is a brilliant photo with great sharpness and beautiful colors.
All the best from Sweden
