Breaking In the Tauntaun (Revisited)

Original description: The Tauntauns, indigenous to Hoth, had to be broken in by a special group of wranglers before the Rebel Forces could use them as mounts. The breaking-in process was short but very fierce, managing it in deep snow was a task for the most skilled animal handlers in the fleet only.

 

Another old photo re-photographed. The original had a problem with camera focus, it was a bit off. Although I like the original, it was the first one with this technique after all, the slight technical error bugged me enough to do it all again.

 

There's a whip in the rider's hand, unfortunately, in this frame it was slightly obscured by the snow spray. Couldn't help that.
