This is an awesome shot! Love the compostion. Do you mind if I share it?
Thank you and thanks for asking. Yes please share it.
Thanks~ I ask just to be sure. I’ll share mostly on Pinterest and Twitter. Have a great weekend!
Thank you. That is appreciated. You too have a wonderful weekend.
🙂 There are some comments that could be made that I will leave to other’s imaginations but I will say I rather like the shadows.
Thanks Rawls – the shadows caught my eye as well.
Were they pulling a wagon full of Borax?? 🙂
Yes they were. I could get the shadow in the same way if I had included the wagon.
I like this very much. Nice one, Tim.
Tommy, thank you.
These are particularly stubborn mules. Concrete seems to solidify their idea of when to move.
Mules, hey are all stubborn. They hate people and work.
Yes, that’s what I’ve heard. I’ve not spent much time in their company.
Another surreal image. Great framing Tim.
Thank you, John. This was a challenge as the team from end to end is about 20 meters and it would have been a snap shot if taken looking end to end. I liked the shadowing created by the concrete horses. The sun was intense at about 2pm in the Mojave Desert.
I just can’t comprehend what it’s like to be in that desert….!
We were fortunate to be there during the spring when the flowers were in bloom. You may have seen some of the images that I posted on the blooming desert. Jaw dropping to see a desert turn from brown to green and then yellows, blues, and purples of the flowers.
Yes, and totally beautiful. I’ve also seen some of Scott’s desert flower pictures. All very impressive.
