RIDE EM COWBOY


As we walked around the Fort, I saw this rope hanging under some stairs. I thought the angles and curves of the rope made an interesting composition.

Remember to click on the picture to enlarge it.

How peacefully coloured and in same time glad photo this is. You really have an ability to find "a right corner" for your photos.
It`s a great pleasure to look at them.
Have a happy day !

This is a nice composition and is even better looking enlarged. Your camera is capturing a lot of detail and it begs the question if you use a tripod or monopod or does your camera or lens have built-in image stabilization?

Also, thanks for stopping at my 720 pixels blog and for the comments about the mother robin feeding her baby chick a worm.

Add to that the light on the wall that's coming through the stairs. This is great!

I love the muted colors and the use of shadow and light.

Thanks again. This time for stopping at the brookville daily photo blog and commenting on the hummingbird moth. Actually, the only moth that does the helicopter flights that also mimics the hummingbird is called, the Hummingbird Moth, which is what I have there on the blog. No other moth does these things. This one is often mistaken for a hummingbird. Anyway. I am amazed at your shots with the camera you are using. It does a masterful job.

That's lovely, that rope hanging on the old barn wall, just waiting for a horse. If you go here you can see "the rest of the horse story".

Sidney said...

Nice frame! Lovely composition.

Mike said...

Great shot! I like the way the sunlight comes through the stairway along with the rope.

Thanks for the historical perspective.

Holy Smokes Little Lady...you've got a lot of texture in that one little shot.

(Ok, it sounds much more "cowboy" in my head, but you get the picture)

The rope together with the wooden stairs brings and ancient mood to the photo. Great!:)

What a photo opportunity when you visited the fort.
