Amazing TDF photos

I'd like to share these photos of the Tour de France. I've never seen a horse-rider in full jersey get-up try to pace a peloton before!

That's pretty damn awesome.

The picture taken with a tilt-shift lens, making them look like little toy TdF riders, is pretty neat as well.

Yeah, the picture with the woman on the horse was great. I also like this one a lot:
