Hillarys Horse Beach is a popular horse exercise area located in the northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia. This area is only small, less than 2km long, but a vital facility to our equestrian community and local residents alike, who love having the horses here. Only recently this beach was under threat of closure by the local council but due to over whelming local support and the horse community at large, the plans were shelved and the horses allowed to stay. The horse and dog beach are joined, but boundary areas are marked by large signs in the sand. The car park area is large and split in two. One side for the horses and one for the dog owners. It is a wonderful place to visit, even if you don't own a dog or a horse but just animals. Just take a leisurely walk along the beach and enjoy the view.
This photograph was taken at a high altitude and focuses on the ocean colour and white perfect sandy beach. The colour banding of the water gives a curvature effect to the image and draws your eye to the horse in the shallow water. As a horse lover myself, this shot is pure heaven, if only we could spend everyday doing this. I love the colours of this image and the subject of the horses in the water. This might be my number one favourite shot to date. Horse heaven.
