Photographer's Note

This is the second shot in my short “sea horses” series. As I said here there were lots of horses on the beach that morning, but this one stood out from the rest. The rider kept it apart from the other horses and kept riding it backwards and forwards towards the shoreline. It seemed a bit frisky and I wondered if it was new to the sea and she was training it. I took lots of shots of it and I think this was the best. I don’t know a lot about horses but it does look a little nervous with its flared nostrils. The WS shows it being led towards the sea, but the back view isn’t so appealing.

The ships you see on the horizon are a common sight at Saltburn. They are waiting for high tide to enter Teesport via the Tees Estuary just north of here.
