  1. 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.

    • Hi Fotostream,

      Thank you πŸ™‚ 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 :-).

      • 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! πŸ™‚

  2. 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 πŸ™‚

    Lovely Landscape πŸ™‚ well done !!!!

    • Hi Nigel πŸ™‚

      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 πŸ™‚

  3. Wow, absolutely calming, relaxing, great colors as well πŸ™‚
    I love that the moon can faintly be seen in the back πŸ™‚ I’d love to be there πŸ™‚

  4. Hi aurumeve,

    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.

    Thank you!
