Horse rescue photo

He took the winning photo at the end of October in the Friesland village of Marrum, where more than a 100 horses were left stranded by flood waters.

The photo, with a white horse in the centre, was described by the jury as a symbol of hope. “Standing proud amid a muddy misery.”

It was judged the best photo from 9,147 entries.

Beautiful video of the horse rescue. If possible, could someone please tell me the name of the background music – it is beautiful and I would like to buy it.
