Winning photo is symbol of hope

Photographer Laurens Aaij has won the 2006 Zilveren Camera photography prize for his photograph of horses stranded by flood water in Friesland in November.

The photo, one of 9,147 entries, was the unanimous choice of the judges. The jury said the white horse in the middle of the group was a symbol of hope.
