Having visited London recently, I was viewing the TE gallery of this city to compare some of my shots with what was in there.
I stopped on this nice capture of queen Boadicea(You can just about read her name in gold letters on the stone stand.) She was a Celtic queen who rallied a lot of tribes from Britain, that were badly oppressed by the Romans. She lived from 30 to 61 BC and was unfortunately defeated, but remains a heroin of Britain unto this day.
She is represented on this statue, which stands in Westminster, with her two daughters, Comorra and Tasca, who took part in the battle at her side.
It's not easy to capture the two daughters at the same time, but I have one pic which I shot in 2009, where you can just about see the three valiant women.
I shall post it in WS for you.
I like your capture with the green light, but I think she is saying to her horses "Don't stop ! Go !" :-)

As I said in the WS note, we were both attracted by the same sight, 8 years apart. Although I am surprised to see the date when you took the photo. I find it strange to see hay in the field at the back, in February.
I like the graphic composition and the play of colourful light on the scenery.
Thanks for sharing.

ce château en impose de part son allure majestueuse , perché son éperon rocheux .
J'aurais donné un léger coup de flash , juste pour déboucher les ombres des feuilles ...C'est juste une suggestion .
Bonne journée .

je suis plusieurs fois passé à Cancale et je n'ai jamais vu cette magnifique statue ( rendant hommage aux femmes faisant ce labeur si ingrat et pourtant si utile ) .
Est-elle nouvelle statue et où ce situe-t-elle ?
Bonne journée .
