Hello, Sharon! I looked for the moon after I watched a title of the blog. Because the moon can be seen sometimes even in the daytime, I cannot say a careless thing. But I think that exposure compensation is made very well. I enlarged the photograph and understood the greatness of that photograph.
Thank you 🙂 I’m happy you clicked and enlarged the image – it’s fun to look closely at something and find a surprise………..
I took this just as the sun was beginning to set in that moment where the sun is on the west horizon opposite the moon rising to the east. It’s always a treat to capture those few minutes.
Nice to hear from you – thanks, Fotostream :-).
You’re welcome, Sharon! The light of the setting sun gives a shadow of much depth to a thing and it makes scenery look beautiful.
I think that it is difficult to express flat land with a photograph. I thought that your photograph was great in this sense. (When I say “the prairie”, I remember “Little House on The Prairie”. – very old!!!)
Little House on the Prairie was a great show, Fotostream. Michael Landon was wonderful. If you want to talk about old, did you ever see him in “Ponderosa?” Also a good show with often touching stories. Thanks so much! 🙂
Yes, I remember it, too. It was a drama attractive at all by the setting that totally varied in each four characters of the family. Michael Landon was very handsome and was the owner of a wonderful personality.
It was all those things, yes. It shows on the Western channel in the US and sometimes I watch it on Saturday mornings. 🙂
A really wonderful image Sharon, sometimes the most simple landscapes, open big sky’s and grassed lands the moon – I just want to sit down, say nothing and be in a space like this 🙂
Lovely Landscape 🙂 well done !!!!
Hi Nigel 🙂
Thank you for such a great comment! Yes, the flat plains, wide skies and the drying grasses against the blue sky………they change not just by the day but almost by the minute. To stop and appreciate them is so important.
I’m happy you like the simple landscapes. I do too……..
Thanks Nigel 🙂
Hi Mary, thank you.
Wow, absolutely calming, relaxing, great colors as well 🙂
I love that the moon can faintly be seen in the back 🙂 I’d love to be there 🙂

Thanks for your kind comments :-).
I’m glad you felt calmed by this image and happy you like the color combinations. I thought blue sky and drying grasses were striking next to each other, so I appreciate that you noticed them.
this is really beautiful, well captured, Sharon… what are the flowers in the foreground?
Hello Scott, and thank you!
I’m pretty sure those are dried Queen Anne’s Lace. 🙂
