Wordless Wednesday – Sea Horse

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Remember the elephant swimming? Well, Mom has a penchant (vocab building project VBP) for the ocean as well as animals, so, this photograph by Kurt Arrigo posted on PhotoBotos caught her attention.

Mom wondered whether some trickery might be involved until she read how Mr. Arrigo captured the shot.

“This particular assignment was of racing horses getting their training in the sea. Swimming is one of the best exercises for the races horses. Apparently 20 min of swimming is a very good work out for them. Since I have also been shooting underwater for the past 15 yrs, I thought it would be an interesting perspective shooting from below, working win the clear clean waters off the Maltese Islands  – I also took advantage of the good light.

It took a while for the horse to get used to my bubbles from my dive gear and I had to be very careful not to get knocked by one of its hoofs … I was very happy with the results and hope to do more in the near future.”

Another great and artistically inspired day.
