Special Thanks to Steve Cherrier for sharing about his photo experience:

I was a very new photographer back when the photo was taken in June of 2006. My wife and I were along with four other friends on a trip of a lifetime to China. I was very excited to be seeing the Terracotta Warriors and was simply in awe when we stepped into the main chamber where the bulk of the warriors were displayed.

This particular shot was taken near the back of the main chamber where a number of horses were displayed. I couldn’t resist focusing on the detailed heads of the horses as they were so beautiful.

About me – I’m a photographer from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I’ve grown a lot in the last few years of taking that photo. I specialize now in portraiture and creative themes. My work is featured on my web site at http://www.stevecherrier.com.
