Thanks, Alana... it's just down the road from where my son lives. And the gentleman that owned the land invited me to take all the photos I wanted to - even in the pasture with the horses if I wanted to. He was down-home-friendly! #3110750

Donna M. Whipkey September 28, 2006

Wow!! What a beautiful photo! #3379955

Diana L. Ralph September 28, 2006

Thank you so much, Donna! When I saw this seen (it's right off the main road), it literally stopped me in my tracks and I had to get out and take the photo... and this lovely little old man was working right near his gate and actually invited me into the pasture with the horses if I desired. The owner of the pasture was a sweet and beautiful as the pasture! I wish now that I had turned the camera in his direction and taken a photo of him leaning on his rake! He was quite a sweet fellow! #3380047

Cyn Valentine level-classic September 28, 2006

Congratulations..beautiful image! #3380054

Diana L. Ralph September 28, 2006

Thanks so much Cyn! I just read my response to Donna and realized that I spelled scene ("seen") wrong... all you spelling teachers out there... I'm sorry if I insulted you. I know how to spell, but my fingers have a mind of their own sometimes! #3380181

This was taken in the foothills of the Sierras near Yosemite in the Spring. Everything was so beautiful. I increased saturation levels a bit and use the BuZZ filter for a more painterly look (except on the horses).
