This….

DSC_0648 (2)This may be a bit deceiving.  It is not as it appears.  It’s not a buffalo?  Well, the scholarly will tell you no, because there are no buffalo in the United States.  It is a bison.  Soapbox, I’ll move on.  It is a buffalo.  He is grazing.  He is not at sunset.  Wait! What?  You heard me right.

This picture was actually taken in the afternoon.  High and harsh sun battling it out with some wanna be storm clouds.  For a while, the sun won.  So, why does this picture look like a silhouette at sunset?  Filters and a lot of shade.  This guy was so dark that when I shot the photo, the shadow being cast upon him made look like a silhouette against a big blue sky.   Beautiful, but not what I was really wanting.

I could have tried to turn up the shade and down the highlights.  I actually did on another, but I didn’t like the way that he looked at that moment.  I wanted something different. I wanted this and I think it looks pretty gosh darn good. Hope you do too.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

Sir Duke….

38005563_10155723986830998_5716868725315993600_oI rarely post photos that I have taken on my phone, but I couldn’t resist these.  I took these today as I was finishing up at the farm.  38137323_10155723986845998_3543405803690000384_oSir Duke was standing in his stall and the sun was reaching dusk status so it was shining through his window.  I had just finished raking the aisle way to his stall and so there was dust swirling around.  It was a perfect scene.  38271010_10155723986840998_1130188715155521536_oNaturally, I didn’t have my actual camera and so I had to use my phone.  I don’t know if it depicts the scene I was wanting it too, but I like them and hope you do too.  38131544_10155723986860998_6991746904329551872_oAnd it would be Sir Duke, if he didn’t add a little bit of this…whatever this is.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
