A herd of white horses galloping through a coastal lake in the south of France have been caught on camera.
They sent water splashing into the air while speeding through the lake near the French town of Sainte Marie de La Mer, near Montpellier, France.
Photographer Scott Stulberg, who took the photos, said seeing the ‘beautiful’ animals gallop through the lake while the sun reflected on the water was ‘magical’.
The Camargue Natural Park area in southern France is made up of wetlands, natural lakes and marshes and includes a large UNESCO biosphere reserve.
Herds of white horses live in semi-wild conditions in the marshy areas of the region, which is located in the Provence in the Alpes Côte d’Azur.
