Harmonious Horseplay

Photograph by Mihaela Jurca, National Geographic Your Shot

While a little dog frolics past, horses nuzzle in a snowy pasture in Bucovina, Romania. Photographer Mihaela Jurca, who submitted the photo to Your Shot, writes, “The horses and dog belong to a local family, very kind and hospitable people … This pair [of horses] got away from the group, with the dog jumping around, so my eyes just followed their playful [and] tender moment, and the winter scenery inspired the shot.”

Thank you for this beautiful moment, Mihaela. My parents grew up in Bucovina so this is special for me.

Very beautiful. Snow resting on tree branches. Best thing to do at time like this is drinking anything hot. Hot Coffee or Hot Cocoa will do. Nature is beautiful
