“A woman milks a mare in the village of Kogershin in southern Kazakhstan. Recent archaeological studies have shown that the Botai people of the Eurasian steppes were the first to actively domesticate horses, 5,500 years ago.”


This is a great picture of a woman milking a mare before night time and makes a great cover photo for this story. The sun eclipsing the shed during sunset is a great touch. I believe it complements the added light focused on the mare and the woman. For the most part the colors are regular and dull, but the red clothing makes a great contrast to the horse along with the background. Technically I’m not quite sure how he took the photo, but I would guess around a f 2.8 with an ISO around 400 or so.
