On the way home from the Women Painting Women -Texas show in Georgetown, Texas. I was driving along a particularly scenic route and stopped to take photos of a field of cattle in the setting sun. A rancher who was driving by stopped to make sure I wasn’t broken down.
The explanation that I was an artist taking photos got me a very accommodating invite to his ranch and I took over a hundred photos of cattle, horses, fields and streams before the light disappeared. I used the horses in one photo and the cloud arrangement in another to get the composition I wanted...I have an open invite to stop by his ranch anytime! I think I'll take him up on that!
