Mysterious riders crossing my path by jchanders

Mysterious riders crossing my path by 

It happened during a lovely autumnal walk in the forests near Hilversum that suddenly these riders crossed my path. In a second they were gone again which gave the whole scene quite a mysterious touch.

    They look as if they’ve perhaps just ridden out from the woods on the left, and indeed they have a mysterious quality about them. Glad it wasn’t at the stroke of midnight! LOL You must have been “quick on the trigger” to have caught them at the optimum moment, dear Juergen! It’s so good to see your addition of new pieces! ~ Pat

  • Many thanks, Pat, for your lovely comment. I had indeed heard their voices, not seen them, and knowing their path was crossing mine, had prepared myself for the shot. Still it was a matter of just a moment, so I was very lucky to get a reasonable result.
