A total new feeling! (35KB)

Horses at Sunset (160KB)
This photo was taken in early January- maybe even New Years in 1996. I find that contrails are very dramatic during cold weather. It is a historic photograph now since the horses are gone, the fences taken down. But the jumps are still there. There is a small stream running through the pasture which the horses would muddy up causing run off into the lake.
