Above is one image from three mornings spent at Holkham Beach photographing the Household Cavalry. The first morning, the Foot Guards arrived with some beautiful horses and even though the weather was bleak and very windy the horses and men seemed to enjoy the time out along the Norfolk beaches.
Take a look by typing in "Household Cavalry" into the search - or following this link: http://www.coastalphotography.co.uk/shop/search?q=household+cavalry
Images can be found in - Places/Norfolk/Household Cavalry 2011 - also in Landscapes and Black and White categories.
The second day were the Blues & Royals and the third day, the best for the weather with a little warmth and sunshine, the Life Guards.
It was a privilege to photograph the horses, they were beautiful and wonderful to watch, and the men - who were great fun.
I was told that some of the horses had never seen the sea before, being used to the streets of London, but they had their saddles removed and were coaxed into the waves by their bare-back riders. A couple of them stood at the edge for a while and stamped the incoming waves. Others shied slightly but then went forward with the gentle urges of their riders. Great to see.
This week I will be showing photography at The Maltings, Staithe Street, Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk, 10am to 5pm, 21st/22nd July.
