Farm Friends Friday - Twilight

Evening is my favorite time of day. Everything quiets down, the wind lays, the sheep all come into the barn lot, mill about nibbling on hay and finding just the right spot to lie down, the chickens check back in from work release...



Last night as I walked up to the barn.



Looked a bit like a horse board game all evenly spaced out like that.



These were all taken at the same time. It didn't get progressively darker. Well, it did, but not in the span of five minutes. You know what I mean.



I was playing with the shutter speed to see how best to balance the horses in the field without washing out the brightness of the moon. The top pictures are what it really looked like.



I got some better moon shots, but I love the leaf in view on this one.

Feels like fall.

Which is my favorite time of the year.

Do you crazy summer loving folks like the middle of the day best?

For more Farm Friends Friday...

The moon was especially pretty as it rose last night! I tried to photograph it as well, but my pics didn't come out nearly as nicely as yours!

Sara
You outdid yourself with this series of shots. Outstanding! I love morning and evening...hot afternoons don't do it for me.

Pam said...

Gorgeous-almost looks like a harvest moon. It is warm today-I can almost feel you cringing..

OMG, Sara! That last photo of the moon is MAGIC! Absolutely stunning.

I'd have to say that my favorite time of day is "Golden Time" ~ that time, late in the afternoon, when the shadows get long and everything takes on a golden hue. From Golden time until dark is a magical time for me. Everything slows down and I take the time to "listen". It's especially nice if I happen to be sitting on the swing, in my backyard, and watching the sheep, with a glass of wine in my hand...

Truly is a beautiful full moon. I just love that last shot!

Alice said...

I got the Parcheesi shot of the horses. Pretty clever!
The last shot could have been taken last night in North Carolina as well. Calendar and Card worthy.

Linda said...

This crazy summer person only really likes it when it is warm. And I really really want you to tell me how to set my camera to take photos of the moon that actually show detail.

Hi there,

Thank you for visiting my blog. Your pictures are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I was looking at your other blogs too. I also spin, knit, crochet. Not real great at any of them, but I enjoy the hobbies.

Fall is my favourite time of year too. I would luv spring a whole lot more if there weren't so many loud barking dogs around my house!

No, I like dawn and dusk best, just like I like Spring and Fall best. But I'll take Summer over Winter hands down!
