Lady & her horse in snowstorm by Félix Thiollier.
“Action” photographs from that era are rare. The films had limited sensitivity, which necessitated a relatively slow shutter speed (1/60 second or longer). This was good timing on the part of the photographer. Since the movement of the horse is primarily towards the camera, there is little motion blur. The posture of the human figure reinforces the sense of a moment frozen in time.
