Peering Over the Fence/ Sky Watch

Early spring sunset

The snow is gone but the grass has not yet turned green yet. In this low light the field looks grey but it is really brown.

A great picture as always. LOL But it is true.
I missed yesterdays and it is beautiful too. I like all the gingerbread on the old houses.
I love a landscape shot though. MB

What a spectacular photo, you captured that sunset perfectly. I love the fencepost in the foreground, a beautifully composed shot.

Jarart said...

A grand sunset! I love the old house in the last post too. If wall could talk.

Dewdrop said...

Such a desolate and magnificent scene! Really excellent with the post in the foreground which captures you for but a moment until the amazing colors of the gorgeous sunset strike you! EG... WOW!

Jan said...

Amazing capture. It's just beautiful.

RuneE said...

I liked the way you made the foreground stand out like that and not just a silhouette - flash?

A very nice job.

Deborah Godin said...

That a gorgeous sunset!! We've got the same situation here - whatever color we get is in the sky. Waiting for green grass, even dandelions would be good!

Pekka said...

Same sun is here in my photo too. We have a little bit of snow on the ground. ;-)

This is LOVELY.

Very beautiful sunset, and I like how the grey-brown of the fence and the field contrast with the sky.

You do capture pretty colors in the sky. Excellent.

What a beautiful sky to see over the fence. Simply gorgeous.

Steve said...

My grass is not perceptibly greener than it was in January (but it was never completely brown). I love it when you do fence shots!

Sandra said...

Such an interesting view! Unusual and beautiful.

Esther Garvi said...

Beautiful view! Makes me want to go for a little ride with my barb mare and head for that sunset! :-)

Sylvia K said...

Gorgeous shot, as always! The colors are so magnificent! You do manage to capture some really dramatic skies! Love it!

earthtoholly said...

Gorgeous! There's just about every color in your sunset. Looks like a very peaceful landscape...

Jacob said...

The grey sets off the sky perfectly. Another excellent shot. You've got a great eye!

VALKYRIEN said...

So wonderful colors on the sky! And I always love your shots with the fences!

great photo, pleased to see no snow. We went to visit our new house on Tuesday and there was still patches of snow through Hockley Valley and at the house.

With colors like that overhead, makes up for the still brown ground. Lovely composition

Rose said...

Beautiful--do you always get a big thrill capturing sunsets/sunrises? I do, and I have got a ga-zillion of them. But it never fails to fill me with wonder to see skies like this.

Babooshka said...

Now this is weird. I think you peered over the fence and got the lighter version of my image. Now I know where my light went. It's an amazing site.

Tarolino said...

I love trast of monochrome tones and a very colourful sky. You still manage to let the shapes of everything come forward with details and all instead of having them as black silhuettes. I find sunset photos often make the landscape quite dark.

PS. I have a tripod for close ups on the moon and night time shots.

Beautiful end to the day. Thanks for sharing.

Looks almost like it's a half black & white photo.

vincibene said...

WOW! A gorgeous sunset!

Diane C. said...

Beautiful skywatch picture. Seems like it would be awesome to watch that big field turn from brown to green over the weeks.

Arlene said...

Great moment to have a meditation. Nice shot!

Happy SWatching!

Carolyn said...

A wonderful photograph...we now have green grass and some beautiful early green crops, some spring flowers and I saw my first leaf(I stress LEAF, cause I only saw one!)today. Tomorrow is suppose to be 18*C around here so maybe some more leaves will decide to grace us! Thank you for sharing and have a lovely weekend.

Beautiful! The rolling hills could be here, but we now have green, at least where the fields have been planted.

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Love your composition, I am a big fan of putting in the odd fencepost to give a picture a depth of field.

Ann said...

That's some sky. Beautiful

Martha said...

A monochrome field and a multicolored sky, just wonderful.

Tammie Lee said...

luna miranda said...
