Aiyanar is a Hindu Village god worshipped in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu and Tamil villages in Sri Lanka. Near the temples of Aiyanar there are usually colourful statues of riding horses.

This picture was taken during Wiki Loves Art/NL, hand held (no tripod or flash allowed). I focused on the eye of the second horse from the right. The picture was selected by one of the jurors of the competition. I like this photo because of the wonderful colours of the horses.

It took quite some shots to reach the final result. You can see the various shots I made, here:
