Beautiful--Indeed!!!!
That is SO nice. You are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful area. Of course I love any picture with a horse. LOL MB

RuneE said...

I "feel" the cold that horse "feels"!

Natural Moments said...

There's alot of great things going on in the photo. The colours and tapestry of the sky are great contrasting with the snow and the horse on the ground, but seperated by the darker treeline. A nice story has been told.

A sky on fire above a land in snow ... Heat opposite cold ... Very nice juxtaposition of these contradictory elements! Have a nice week-end!

Oh that's wonderful, the way the colors compliment each other. The sky makes the blue bluer, and vice versa. Really nice capture!

Canada just has a bigger sky, there's no getting around it. I wonder if horses and such think about the beauty of sunrises, they're out in them more than we are.

Hildegarde said...

A perfect scene, wow !! Real good ! And the four deer are gorgeous too.

This is one of those simply devine shots. Such a huge sky and clolourful too. The horse looks very small under it. Love the snow too.

Louise said...

They sky is spectacular, but the snow makes it even more so. Wonderful capture!!!

bowledover said...

This is a great picture, the horse was taking notice of something else I feel.
Really good.
Thank you for sharing.

Susan said...

What an amazing photograph, with such a beautiful contrast between the cold snows of the paddock and the fire and drama overhead.

The horse's pose and your composition make it something out of this world, really special.

Thank you for sharing it--it's spectacular.

Holy Cow - are you familiar with "Country" magazine? Your photo could totally have come right out of there! Absolutely stunning.

Pearl Maple said...

Beautiful photo for sky watch friday, combining a colorful sky with the quiet white snow covered foreground is very eye catching.

Thanks for sharing with Sky Watch Friday and your kind comments on my post earlier.

Reader Wil said...

Wow!! I envy you because of the snow and ..... the gorgeous sunset!

How did you get the horse to pose so nicely for you? Beautiful sunset. Stunning.

Jan said...

Fabulous. Had to laugh at the comment about getting the horse to pose. Too, funny.

You know... as I go through these sites week by week, occassionally, I come across that shot that really strikes me and causes me to just stop and take pause. This is absolutely amazing! I am truly blown away by it!

That gorgeous sunset makes the snowy foreground bareable. Great SWF.

Any picture with a horse in it is interesting, but this one is stunning.

crazy working mom said...

It looks as though someone took a paintbrush and made a perfect display of yellow and gold in the sky! It's breath taking. Nice shot! I'm looking at the sky here.

You're right the photos were from the beginning of November, but everything still looks like that outside here.

Arija said...

Beautiful. I like your conifer wind and snow break. Should thicken out nicely in a few years.

Ackworth born said...

great contrast between the firey sky and the cold snow with the lonesome horse.

The contrast of the blazing sun and the frozen (or snowy) ground is really interesting.

the horse in the image does it for me!

Rose said...

This is a beauty! And I still go back and stare at the one below with the deer.

Maria said...

I see from your photo that winter has come to your region! How beautiful it is!
Vienna (and Austria) has many "wild" places indeed. The town planning is quite good, but the citizens take care of wild nature,too.
Have a nice weekend and thanks for visiting my blog!

Daryl said...

Cold but so lovely

Laura ~Peach~ said...

Wren said...

Lovely photo - quintessentially winter scene.

Wren said...

PS - The only advantage to being a little behind on skywatching is the chance to see what's been posted since Thursday or Friday. Love "Hee-Haw"
