Sunday Stills ~ Shadows

When you know something personal
about a Cowboy, you know too much.
~Abigale Carter 1890~

This week's Sunday Stills photo challenge is "Shadows."

It's been a really busy week and I didn't get time to focus on the task, but I had taken the first photo last weekend before I knew what the challenge was...because I liked the shot!


Found Some Shade
Cindy Sue's found just a bit of shade.


This second shot is from the archives. We had moved cows down the road about 13 miles and were settling the herd for the night.

That one of Cindy Sue is sooo cool, never thought of using shadows like that before.

Cindy Sue looks like she is in jail! Great shots. :)

MY.... what a long legged horse you have

I've seen the cats sit behind a fence post just for the strip of shade.

Ebie said...

Cindy Sue not only got shade, but she's got more strips too!

The second shot looks like your horse had grown quite a few inches on his legs!

Great photos!

Shirley said...

Both good ones! Shade is a little hard to find around here too sometimes. I was trying to get real close to the water truck at the arena today for the little strip of shade it offered.

Cindy Sue: Jailed by shade. I love the horse sentinel on the hill.
