It was an excursion in the deserts around Dubai. The purpose was to go with big GMC trucks up an down on the hills around the dunes. A bit difficult to go on for people of a certain age, but I decided to go on anyway and the frenesy went on until we decided to rest for a while. It was late afternoon and the light was already very low. While trying to take desert shot I was lucky to find galloping horsemen.

C'est superbe, j'aime beaucoup ces couleurs chaudes du sable, et la structure des petites vagues qui se forment.
Les 2 cavaliers en mouvement avec un léger flou,donnent une bonne composition de l'ensemble.Du beau travail.

Beautiful colours, both the sky and the sand dunes. The patterns and shadows on the dunes are great.

This would be my dream- holiday ;-)

I am a bit sorry the horses don't go as fast as you would have needed for a perfect shot, having choosen the Desert as a view and the horses as an element.
Anyway I like this one

You certainly captured the moment with this shot. The very dust from the hooves is well seen here, and I like the fabulous dune hills in the background, where the texture and lines are so well defined. A very fine shot, Izzet. Congratulations.

Beautiful scene, Izzet - the riders in the foreground, with the clouds of sand at the bottom, bring a lively aspect to the splendid view of the undulating dunes in the sunlight. Great textural and tonal richness in this one and a very warming aspect provided by the lighting.

Great shot Izzet!
I love it! The composition is superb, the levels are good - as is the color. My only suggestion would be to apply some noise removal software (just to the sky) to smooth it out a bit.
All the best!

Amazing sharpness, texture and color of the dune, and a fantastic position of the horse riders. I also like very much the gradient of blue tones in the sky, from left to right. Beutiful shot, Izzet.

güzel kum tepelerinin önünde yarısiluet halindeki atlar çok çarpıcı. Çok hoş bir kompozisyon. Selam.

Is not only the desert and the sand, also the movement of the horses and the people.
I like this one very much.
Thanks for share.

Kum tepelerinin gölgede kalan kısımları, güneş-gölge arası keskin hatları, üzerlerindeki dalgalanmalar ve tabii güç katan atlar ve hareketleri harika...
Sevgiler - Coşkun

The light is just as good as you can wish. Strong feeling of liberty on this picture : the wild desert for themselves. Great scene for me !

Romantic Arabian Nights view of these gorgeous horses over the gorgeous dunes in sunset.

Beautiful landscape and textures - also a nice capture of this movement including the blowing sand behind them! Nice image!

Izzet, I went through your entire portfolio and I am deeply impressed. It is really hard to pick one particular photo to comment on as there are so many fantastic shots. I really wonder how could I not notice you for so long. Even I have commented on some of your photos through the time. I've added you as my favorite now so I wont miss more of your work. I've chosen the leave comment on this shot as middle east might be next place I might move to... Great work overall. Lucie

If those people dressed differently, they would look like Arabian Knights riding in open spaces. Very well taken.
