Not quite as planned

Not quite as planned

I had it in mind to take a photo of these handsome horses in
this flower filled field for some time. But most times when
I drove passed, they were standing in front of the old house and
mill. This evening they were, but as I got out of the car, I realised
that there was an electricity pole just to the left of the tree with
overhead wires going across the scene so I couldn't frame it
as I wanted. The horses were also further away than I would
have liked. I guess I could have climbed over the gate and sought
a better view but I was late getting out from work and my
dinner was waiting for me at home.

This is so nice with that beautiful light. Such a peaceful late-afternoon scene.

Such a lovely setting... I wonder what that tall brick chimney was used for?

There will always be another time to get the shot as you planned. Meanwhile, this one is just lovely. Pretty lighting and nicely composed.

But you captured this lovely scene anyway, and there is a little bird in the tree who is working as an extra, a fine capture. How was dinner? V
