Texas Sunset #2   10 comments

Here’s another picture taken the same evening as the previous one, only across Highway 181 N, and not across the fields behind our property:

Texanischer Sonnenuntergang #2

Hier ist ein weiteres Bild, aufgenommen an demselben Abend wie das vorherige, nur dieses Mal in eine andere Richtung, über Highway 181 Nord hinweg und nicht über die Landschaft hinter unserem Grundstück:

… that the cattle in the previous one really wasn’t a Longhorn but a cross-breed: it is too small, and way too stocky/fleshy.


Longhorn-Hereford Cross Breed?

… this was a Longhorn, but a closer look revealed it is way too stocky and by far not lean enough:


Maybe a Longhorn-Hereford Cross?

This is a close-up of one of the two horses I showd in my previous post, and it’s the last one from that day at Fort Martin Scott – the last picture of horses there, that is:

Before Sunrise in Our Garden   3 comments

This morning, I happened to be up early and caught a few shots in our garden before sunrise, with the moon and the morning star still up in the sky, while the first pink colours were just showing up. It’s amazing, though, how much detail the camera catches. There’s plenty in this picture – after enhancing it, of course – which I had not been able to see with the naked eye, e.g. the deer in the foreground, to the left, or the hills further up Lower Crabapple Road just showing through the trees on the left.
