10 inspiring images of the White Horses of the Camargue

I wanted to share more images from our White Horses of the Camargue photography trip in September 2018 to give everyone an idea of the sort of photographic opportunities available. You’ll notice that I haven’t included any images of the frenzy of white horses running towards you with water splashing everywhere. The point of this blog post is to demonstrate what else can be achieved.

A group shot of these stunning horses is a definite must-have. The reflection shot was taken at sunrise using a Canon 1Dx Mk 2 & Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM at ISO 640, f/7.1, 1/250s, -1ev at 80mm. As the horses started to move towards us, I changed settings because I wanted a tight group shot. For those of you interested in my settings, this shot was taken at ISO 1000, f/8, 1/500s, 0ev at 300mm.

This beautiful white stallion was an absolute superstar & our session on the beach was probably my favourite for many reasons. I selected these two images because they show off how powerful he is. Just look at the sand that is kicked up as he gallops along the beach. I have to say that the adrenaline was kicking in as he ran towards us!

When we were planning the itinerary for our White Horses of the Camargue photography trip, we decided that we wanted to offer something different from what was already available. This is one of the reasons why we opted for a photography session with a stunning black stallion instead of the traditional black bulls. I mean, who doesn’t want their own photo of “Black Beauty” galloping in the sea surf?
I’ve been asked by many people why we choose to run this trip in September. The answer is quite simple. The day may be shorter, but the chances of getting a dramatic or lovely coloured sky are much better. More importantly, there are a lot fewer mosquitoes!
Yes, I know you have seen this silhouette image already but the blog post is about inspiring pictures of the white horses & I think it fits the criteria. Don’t you?
If you would like to join our White Horses of the Camargue photography trip in September 2019, you can find more details here.
