A rider urges his horse through the flames of a bonfire during Las Luminarias de St Anton, an annual festival which takes place every January in San Bartolomé de Pinares, near Madrid. St Anton is the patron saint of animals, and riding horses through the flames is thought to purify and protect them from harm. Nikon Df, 24-120mm f/4, 1/640 sec, f/4.5, ISO1250
N-Photo says: There’s real drama in Lluís’s very graphic photograph of a horse and rider silhouetted against the flames.
