Heather K. McFarland level-classic March 12, 2005

Thank you so much Paula, Marsha and William! This farm is only a couple of miles from my house, so I have been able to go back there everyday for the last week and a half to study how the light effects the fence and 3 hills that come together to find the best time to shoot this. Then had to wait for fresh snow and nice skies. Wednesday was finally the day where everything came together. The best time happened to be around 10:30 am. There is a large hill to my back looking at this scene and the light doesn't get down in this pasture till late morning! #1167435
