Shadowy Corral

at an empty wooden trough—
two hungry horses

That's a beautiful shot, love the horses! Thanks for joining this weekend and have a great weekend!

Ralph said...

We personify the horses and think they are in a stockade. Yet, the horses don't care - they feel protected while they feed and drink inside. The loyalty of their handlers are appreciated...

Oh yeah, what Ralph just said! Very cool Shadow Shot.

Kelly said...

Aww..I hope they find more than just shadows in their trough!

Love the fenceline of shadows!!

Antonette said...

Love the horses! My choice for SSS is up, shadows in the background.

Dianne said...

the shadows appear to be creeping up on the horses

Paula Scott said...

Isn't that a cool place? They do have the best shadows and I also imagine that this time of year, there should also be lots of baby sheep (ewes) wandering around with their mothers. Makes me want to go on another road trip!

I'm with Cassie about what Ralph said .. he always has just the right thing to say about our shadow shots ;-)
It is a wonderful shot .. I can almost hear the horse softly stomp a bit .. snort a bit .. I don't mind the smell of horses at all either. I just can't ride anymore darn it!

great slatty shadows.

Beverley Baird said...

Love these great shadows! Like an interior shadowy fence!
Great haiku as well!

Sylvia K said...

I love the shadowy fence and the moping horses wondering where the food is???? Terrific shot for the day! Have a wonderful weekend!

Catherine said...

Love those fence shadows....

Joan said...

Love all the shadows.
When I saw those horses waiting, it gave me a chuckle. My brother's animals know the exact time of feeding, and they are waiting just like this.

I love this one. The way the shadows point to the horses is just great. Thanks for hosting!

Dina said...

Oh, poor horsies. Those shadows make quite a corral.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Striking shadowy verticals seeming to frame the horses! Lovely photo!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

At first I thought it was the OK Corral in Tombstone. Neat picture.

Chubby Chieque said...

I don't know if I am happy if I am inside the fence, then just think I am sorrounded with shadows too §;-)

Great shot Gem! Hope your enjoying your last days of hot and sunny days.
Unlike us here in Sweden/EU. We're still struggling Mother Nature's decision this Spring.

Happy SSS,

The straight lines in that shadow shot are intriguing. Love it. I've posted hope you all enjoy. Happy Shadow Shot Sunday everyone!

Rinkly Rimes said...

A good question! The crisp shadow doesn't fit with the blurred reality! You may have chanced on some new scientific fact!

Angie said...

Long, long shadows - it looks hot & dusty!

Lighthousegal said...

Lovely photo. The horses are beautiful as well as the long shadows of the fence.

MyMaracas said...

Those long shadows seem menacing somehow. Interesting shot!

namaki said...

This is a great composition !!

Alexa said...

I'm loving this shot too. (And I hope someone came and fed those poor ponies!)

Daryl Edelstein said...

happy sunday .. is it the end or the beginning of the week ... love those shadows ..

Laura said...

beautiful...fences must be a theme today!

Andrea said...

It would be a beautiful shot without the shadows, but the shadows give it an eery tone ... makes it much more interesting.
Nice job,
