One Year of Images from this area of Mendocino County, California
very clever to have noticed the double arrows ;) great !
I can smell it from here too, arrows or not!Sunshine Coast Daily - Australia
It took me some time to see the smaller arrow. I like the smell of newly-mown grass (though it makes my nose itchy). Does hay smell similar?
nice shot. love the textures and light.
It took me a minute to see the double arrows. Very neat!
The light arrow is a bit magical. I feel like I could follow it to a C.S. Lewis type place.
Marvelous! Framing and exposure are excellent. The more we look, the more we see ... Gold Star today :))
Ah-chooo!Hey, what a perfectly executed photo. Bravo.
Beautiful composition, lovely. I'm a new follower.
I gasped when this loaded onto my screen. Brilliant. You are brilliant.
I'm glad you all enjoyed this as much as I liked spotting it. I had tried on a couple of other occasions to get shots of the back loading area when all I had for light was the overhead fluorescent ones, but they never worked. I was out taking pictures of the mural, seen yesterday, when I noticed some sunlight slanting in to the hay in the dock. How it presented itself was just pure luck. I couldn't believe how the painted arrow notched in with the light. Ten minutes later, and I would have missed it. As we all know, don't leave home without your camera, and pay attention to light first, subject second. I've seen what most of you people do, so I know I'm preaching to the choir.As for the smell, I'm not an expert, but I think different kinds of hay have different smells, sort of like beer might have to enthusiasts. In my experience, alfalfa hay smells different than other hay, which can be oats, wheat, or barley grass. If you were making a perfume of it, you might use some essence of mowed grass, toned down with notes of powdered wheat flour and dry clay. Hilda, that's the best I can do. I'm only semi-rural.
Hey! Hay? I forgot to thank you all! Thanks!
Hay now, that's one keen eye you have, Elaine, to pick that fleeting moment to capture an excellent image!
Thanks for talking about the smell. I remember it from kid-hood, sweet and earthy. There are horse barns near here. I should make a visit.
That green hay might give me a stomach ache. Maybe leave it to the vegans.
