No City Views, No SkyScrapers, No Highrises, No Blue Hour lighting...I must be lost! :)
I thought i'd upload a very typical Canadian scene, these are a dime a dozen in every province of our large country. Outside of Vancouver, there are hundreds of farms just like this one.
While driving around the city of Fort Langley, i couldn't help but pull the car over and snap off a few photos.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for looking!

Tu t'es égaré dans la campagne apparemment -)
Tu n'as, en tout cas, pas perdu ton sens de la composition et ta maitrise technique. Une très bonne photo, lumineuse et très agréable à contempler.

nice this country side view with the horses to graze care free in this farm.I like the beauty of the place with the calmly and the tranquillity to be the main characteristic of the image.

Well this just goes to show that your abilities as a photographer are not just limited to cityscapes but also to other more wide-ranging subjects too!
This is a superb bucolic scene (I love that word!) with exquisite detail and sharpness, glorious well saturated (though not overly so) colours, perfect exposure and lovely contrasts. There is full detail in the deepest shadows and also in the lightest parts. And all under a stunning sky.

This bucolic, quite simple photo, satisfies me completely. I appreciate this almost natural landscape. I like very much the sky, the light, the colors. I appreciate the neatness. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Really this one a bit differ from you usual posts.
Horses always been a facinating subject, and well taken in rural area like here, with fine depth and colors.
The red hut on BG reminede me some of Norway picture by Pablo Minto's posts.

A beautiful rural scene with excellent great control of lighting conditions. Grazing horses render a very peaceful scene, love your closeness to these
lovely and curious creatures. This fairly wide coverage image offers lots of wonderful green, good touch red farmhouse and the hanging cotton clouds
beautify this pastoral landscape. Great shot, Congrats
delpeoples (59886) 2011-08-17 2:48
This is a really lovely rural scene, and I gather it's not too far from the city of Vancouver. I like it alot mostly because it's really different from your usual subjects but also because it's really well-balanced with the horses on one side and the quaint old barn on the other. Great job, have a lovely day.
cornejo (47302) 2011-08-17 5:26

Thank you for the visit on my 1000th photo.
I love horses in the fields. They always look so peaceful. This is what your image suggests here with sharp and natural colors under a perfect sky. Nice framing of the horses with the barn and fence.

Hello Craig, A beautiful tranquil rural scene, before I read your your note I had the same thought exactly, except for that part about being lost, well worth the stop, nice capture, lovely white clouds, maybe deserving more room.

True, it's an unusual scene to find in your gallery ;)
A pleasant luminosity and a dynamic sky, to discover this peaceful area.
Horses are nice subjects for photography and here, they were well positioned as they balanced the traditional farm.
