What a great catch! I almost didn't notice the horse -- the sunset was so beautiful@

Small City Scenes said...

So neat. What a great horse. He is conserving his strength until he has to work!!! LOL Very bucolic. I love it. MB

see you there! said...

Beautiful. Sometimes I can't tell if the sun is rising or setting until I read the captions. Is there a way to determine which is which from a photo?

reminds me of home (when I was a kid) great shot

Esther Garvi said...

Aw, this is just too cute and too serene! I'm sure that horse has dozed off for the night - things look so peaceful I'm sure I would too!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great picture, EG... Love that sky--with the sun going down. Gorgeous!
Hugs,
Betsy

Dewdrop said...

That place looks like peace, like if I looked in the dictionary under peace, this would be the picture. Awesome... serenity.

He looks like he is asleep to me. I was always amazed that all animals can get any rest at all while standing up on their feet but they do.

RuneE said...

To me, the horse and the stable make the picture - a magnificent atmosphere when the setting sun is added.

PS Doesn't horses sleep standing?

Jarart said...

Wonderful sleepy horse at sunset! A quiet, peaceful image. Makes one feel all is well with the world.

George said...

Maybe he's just contemplating the beauty of that sunset. What a gorgeous photo.

cieldequimper said...

Gorgeous. Simple and perfect. Love it!

Gill - That British Woman said...

lovely photo........I wonder do horses sleep standing up or laying down?

Deborah Godin said...

Beautiful, and there's something almost horse-y about the cloud, not sure what - a bit of mane, a flying tail?

Quiet Paths said...

What a great shot; that is a very impressive heavy horse.

Guy D said...

Now that is a peaceful photo, I absolutely love it.

Have a great weekend!

Too funny! - and beautiful all at the same time. He does look like he's asleep.

Louise said...

LOVE this sky! Ours was like this before in the afternoon yesterday. (I was locked in a meeting at sunset, so I've no idea how it turned out.) HOWEVER, near me there is nothing so picturesque beneath the sky!

VALKYRIEN said...

Love the cloud in your shot! Lovely colors and shape! And I believe the horse is taking a nap - yes!

Great shot!

leejatta said...

What a beautiful sleepy atmosphere,
thank you!

( Our snow is covering still everything, it has started a little to become more wet, but nowhere is still a ground to see :) It is very usual yet in this time of year on our latitudes )

Beautiful weekend to you!

Janie said...

Great shot. He looks like he's nodding off. Beautiful sunset, too.

Mojo said...

Well if he's already nodded off, I wouldn't recommend waking him up. That's one powerful looking beast! Whew!

And he's the perfect counterpoint to that gorgeous sunset!

Daryl said...

What a handsome fellow .. and what a perfect composition ..

aurinkoinen blogi =) said...

Photo Cache said...

I know it's about the sky today; but looking at that picture, I couldn't help but admire the beauty of that horse.

ViennaDaily said...

He could be lol...Beautiful play of instruments here....love the burning sky!

koala said...

I have to admit shamefully I have some trouble telling between sunset photos and sunrise photos.

Sylvia K said...

I do believe he has!! Gorgeous shot! Beautiful sky and handsome horse!

Martha said...

Beautiful sunset and composition. I love your ice on the pond as well.

Erin said...

yep...i think i hear him snoring...
beautiful capture there.

Tarolino said...

What an idyllic scene. Trust you to come up with the most enchanting photo each time. The contrast between the greyness of the landscape and the tired horse and the red sky is amazing and yet there are no stark contrasts. How do you do it?

J Bar said...

Quite beautiful.

That is a BIG horse! I'm assuming it's a working farm horse, some of the breeds are enormous. Happy SWF!

Sara Chapman in Seattle said...

A very beautiful photo. Almost Vermeer-ish in its sense of pause and stillness. Nice work, as usual.

Leedra said...

Awesome photo, all of it, not just that the sun is setting. Really nice SWF post.

All is still, enhanced by the setting sun and the shadows of the trees. Very pleasing.
