Rural landscapes: the yard, all to himself


While driving between the Rocky Mountain towns of Golden and Radium, I’ve come across this scene before and, in fact, photographed it. However, the photo never seemed compelling enough to publish.
On a recent trip, I passed this scene once more. But the addition of a horse in such a perfect position made me stop and pull out the camera again. Thankfully, he (she? I’m no expert in these things) stayed still long enough to make several compositions. This is one of the best.
