Sniffing for Light


Empty horse corral—
shadows drift across dry slats,
sniffing for fresh light.

  17. Now that’s a great fence!!

  18. Great picture!! I love those old wooden corrals, it’s a shame that so many are being replaced by pipe.

  19. Great shot! All the twists and turns of the fencing is interesting.

  20. Love the composition of this picture, great job! 🙂

  21. I love those wooden corrals, too, but they’re getting harder and harder to find these days! Terrific shadow shot for the day!

  22. It’s such a desolate view and sets the perfect background for your Haiku. I like it.

  23. well written – descriptive, nice pairing..

  24. LOVE this fence! Looks like something we might find here.

  25. Love the rustic fences but feel a bit sad that the corral is deserted.

  26. blue and earthen colors are lovely

  27. Delightful earthy grey tones criss crossing their shadows! Lovely perspective!

  28. I wonder where the horses went?

  29. great shot – love all the patterns of the fences…

  30. Oh I truly love this shot. The angle the shadows it is perfect. B

  31. Dusty, and lonesome- wonder where the horses are? Great shot!

  32. I never tire of seeing images from Hubbell Trading Post-I especially love that horse corral! There should be lots of baby sheep and goats wandering around this time of year too.

  33. I like the picture in my mind of shadows sniffing. 🙂 Very original.

  34. Looks like the set of an old western movie.

  35. Wow…excellent. And your Haiku…again, a well done piece of work. I would have gone with a tumbling tumbleweed…but your talents shine again.

    It was a busy holiday weekend for us, so I’m very far behind in paying visits to all who have left me comments in the last three days. Thanks for stopping by and taking time to leave such a positive comment for me. Hope your week will treat you kindly!!!

  36. Lovely rustic wooden fence, looks like it was a beautiful blue sky day. 🙂
