Not quite a perfect Western scene - it's lacking the windmills that Rosemary (SnapRJW) has so successfully documented recently - but still a nice look at a low, ranch-style Western house at sunset on a wide open field. I pulled the car over in order to take this shot, and while it didn't come out quite as well as I'd hoped, I like it for its light and simplicity.

You can feel the warmth of the sun here in the nice tones of the colour of the house. Well composed - house off centre and placed on line of thirds.
Worth pulling over for.

Hi Andrew - I like the shot, the light is super just reflecting nicely off the white window frame adding contrast and a lovely warmth to the image. I like your crop too, you have a good balance between the sky and land and I get the feel of wide open spaces. Simple and very effective. Warm regards rosemary
PS Thanks for the mention!

Love the way the warm sunset light illuminated the house. The sweeping view show the vast plain of the land. The only thing that might have enhance it is a few clouds on the sky. Still a good shot.

Great countryside secene, simple but impresive image.
You get very good daylight on the house. Contasrt of the shade over there is very tasteful. Artstic color touch is marvelous. Thanks for your sharing with best job and have a good day!

This looks so much better when enlarged than what it does in the thumbnail. The light really is exquisite and I like the simplicity and minimalism in the way you composed it. The panoramic cut works well too Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day.

Lovely calmness feel accentuated by the low warm light hitting the country house making it standout strikingly against the surroundings. Simple compo that works well detailed with adequate clarity and coloring. You have captured the mood perfectly. Well done, Congrats.

Great colours and light. Also very good use of the rule of thirds leaving some "breathing space" at the top.

And you where so right to pull over. The simplicity and the light really makes this shot. It is so calm and reassuring.

A simple but a beautiful shot, lovely light and clever POV. A good place to get unstressed!
All the best!

it is indeed a beautiful scene with great lighting, and such a wonderful little house too. What a great place to live, and what a view to wake up to.
