France

Equestrian sports, magic sights and the protection of the habitat.

WEG 2014 in France. The medals have already been awarded – World Equestrian Games in France – an emotional roller-coaster ride. Beautiful landscapes, fabulously beautiful pictures of endurance riders on the beach in front of Mont Saint Michel. I am not sure if I have ever seen anything more beautiful, later the news of catastrophic track conditions and their fatal consequences appeared.

Edgar Degas and the horses

Edgar Degas: who does not know his drawings and paintings of bathers or dancers by Edgar Degas – less widely known, but just as beautiful are the portraits of horses and riders. Over the years of his creative work (1853-1908) Edgar Degas created several pictures of horses and riders. Groups of people with horses in the landscape, scenes at the racetrack, horses in training – Degas captured special atmospheres in wonderful color moods.
