Sky Watch Friday



(c) Misty DawnS

This is a from a series of shots I did when our NEW cows (woohooo! I've missed them! yippee! We have cows again - FINALLY!!! Nah, I'm not really that excited about them *grin*) were standing on the hill when the sun was setting. So, if you are thinking you already saw this shot on my other blog, you actually saw a very similar shot from the same series of obsessive "I'm-so-happy-we-have-cows-again" sunset snapping. :-)

Yes, I printed one of these and entered it in the fair photography contest. Unfortunately though, when I got these shots, I had already ordered my prints to enter in the contest. So, since several people liked the shot on my other blog, I printed it myself and took one of last year's entries apart so I could use the matting from it. Unfortunately, the matting is a white oval matting and really takes away from the photos - it seriously did not do it justice - but you have to work with what you have.

So, if you are wondering... NO - this wasn't the winner of one of the seven ribbons. ;-)
(absolutely rotten, aren't I? Don't worry - I'll give you all the details... soon... very soon... I promise. hehe)

Beautiful photo! (All cows facing north/south as they should be;)

Looking back over older posts, just wanted to say I love the cemetery arch! You have inspired me to get some better silhouettes against dramatic skies.

Wow, Mist, that is an absolute classic. Wonderful image in anyone's book.

Light's just right. Silhouettes are just right. And the composition, with the tree, is perfect.

Full marks to you.
