Sunday Stills - Sunrise, Sunset

This ended up being a tough challenge due to the weather. A good challenge though because it forced me to learn a little more about my camera. Thanks Ed!



The fog on Monday gave us our only notable sunrise. Well, I guess any day the sun rises is notable, but you know what I mean ;-).



The horses add a little interest.



While clouds can really make a sunset, heavy clouds don't really help much at all. A couple evenings the sun was at least visible, but the sunsets weren't much to write home about. I played around with the white balance a little and was happy with the results.



Not a great sunset...until you notice Hank in the foreground. You'll have to biggify to see him. Every sheepie sunset needs a trusty guard dog ;-). This was the evening I took the Goofy Graham pictures.



One of the old pine trees in the side paddock. One night last summer I was sitting out there with Keebler and Graham Lamb and an owl swooped right over our heads. It was awesome. And a little scary - we actually felt the air move. Too bad our buddy wasn't sitting in the tree this evening.



Some (more) ominous clouds creeping over Equinox Farm and the wool house. This was taken from the upper paddock where I feed the horses...in the first picture.

For more Sunday Stills from sunnier spots around the world...

You have such a picturesque farm that even a not so sunny day still looks serene and peaceful. Lovely photos regardless of the weather. You did justice with your new camera.

Fog can certainly add an interesting element to a sunrise, as you have shown.

Very pretty! I think the cloudy weather forced us all to think out of the box a little bit.
