Behind The Lens

I took this photo in Saintes Maries de la mer in South of France. This place is famous for its white wild horses and their natural habitat is salt waters and acres of green lands.
This photo was taken at around 10:30 am. The light was quite difficult and the background looked flat
Lighting can be tricky. Background is normally not that interesting. Horses are not very predictable about which direction they will come from and they run at fast speeds. So ISO, Shutter speed, aperture keeps changing. I normally do not like using auto ISO. If I do it, i would put limits on it.
I always use a NIKON camera. This particular one was taken with a D800 using a Nikon 70-200mm zoom lens with a 2.8mm focal length. No tripod, no flash. But wellies are essential :)
The horses of Camargue are white and they are wild. Watching them gallop across salt lakes is breathtaking; imagine a herd of 40 stallions running towards you, emerging from the water. When they are close enough, their ears perk up, and water splashes everywhere. Your senses become overwhelmed with the sounds of the horses galloping in water and the smells of the surrounding areas. How can you not capture that scene?
I use minimal amount of post processing and in this one probably just a bit of cropping and cleaning up the spots from mud.
In my camera bag
I have two camera bodies: Nikon D800 and Nikon D7100. I usually take with me my Nikon 70-200mm zoom lens, and I also pack a 1.6x teleconverter. Lots of lens cleaning cloths. Rain covers, and gloves for my self as I normally take these photos in freezing conditions. When you take photos in Camargue, mosquito repellents, and wellies are essentials.
I would try different angles. The lower you are to the ground the better. Try to get close to the horses and also try to capture their reflection on water. I will use fisherman clothing and get into water next time.
