The photo was taken at The Hubertus Hunt, an annual cultural event in the Deer Park in Klampenborg, north of Copenhagen. The park’s grounds were covered with a carpet of fallen leaves and the distant clip-clop of horses and cheers of families resonated through the air, setting the stage for a tradition that had evolved from a real hunt into a captivating demonstration race, with horses as the sole animals involved.
Among the thousands of spectators, my boyfriend and I found our way to the most popular place to view the Hunt, a pond where horses and riders must first jump over an obstacle and then cross the water. Balancing on his shoulders, I adjusted the shutter speed and aimed my camera lens at the water crossing. The crowd hushed in anticipation, and I felt the thrill of capturing a moment that would soon unfold before us.
Just as I clicked a few pictures, a sudden misstep sent both of us falling onto the grass.
