Drinks at dusk

28 11 2011

Thank you all for your votes! So very much appreciated! It makes a hard process a little easier. 🙂

Some more pix from last week’s visit. Despite the low sun, I walked out to Hollywood and Comanche’s, even though they were already on the shady side of Flat Top and the sun set before I even got to them … but I wouldn’t have missed the visit.

Last light on McKenna Peak and the unnamed promontory.

Reflected light … it must have bounced off the far hills – the sun had set on the other side of this hill.

Hollywood was standing sentinel on top of the hill (one of the finger ridges that lead up to Flat Top’s top), and Juniper ran up to him …

Then he play-chased her down to where Piedra was, both of them bucking and kicking up their heels. The poor quality is because my ISO was cranked as high as it would go! But I liked the moment of suspension. 🙂

Then it was time for their evening drink at the pond. I was a little surprised to see Comanche drink right next to Piedra, who was right next to Hollywood.

He did drink next to Kestrel, too, though.

All together.

Juniper, her reflection and Piedra – love how they all line up.

Piedra grazing after drinking.

Mama Kestrel and Juniper in amazing reflected glowing after-sunset light.

Last light on the La Sals.

Comanche, one of the very last pix I took that evening.

I love it, too – Kestrel’s expression, in particular – but the quality really isn’t that great because my ISO was cranked. It’s pretty noisy. 🙂

Beautiful pictures. Kind of an other world quality.

The one of ‘Piedra grazing after drinking,’ when I first saw it it immediately reminded me of Luna. Are they related at all?

Not that I *know* of … but it’s always possible.

You are One dedicated lady. I enjoy all your posts. Maybe sometime soon I will visit (your) the horses again. I enjoyed my time out there with the wild ones.

Yep. The horses make it easy. 🙂 I do hope you’ll visit again!
