    A few weeks ago I took a walk with my dog which just happened to coincide with the last of the sun's light being thrown across the fields near where I live. I don't take my camera everywhere, but thought I would this time, as sun at this time of day is getting rare.

    I'm quite pleased with how these turned out, I'd really appreciate any comments or suggestions/criticism you could share.

    Last light on hay bales:

    Light has almost gone, just a hint of colour in the sky and the moon is up:

    Thanks for looking :blushing:

    Oh, I am so glad you had decided to take the camera along on that particular evening!!!
    The "last rays on the hay bales" are so nice, they make me wish I could walk that way in that light, too! Very much my kind of a photo, these are! Very.
    Looks like you have a beautiful path to walk with your dog!!!

    Thanks guys, I'm so glad you liked them. We had a lot of rain after I took these, and now it's dark at this time in the evening, so I was lucky to get them when I did.

    LaFoto, I have some shots up my sleeve for your 'Footpaths' theme ;). You're right, it's a lovely walk to take - unless it's raining

    Mine, too. The light is perfect. And it just looks like such a beautiful area to roam around in. :)

    Thanks Terri, and Chiller :blushing:. The first shot is what I was picturing before I left the house that day - it is the first time I have ever known what I wanted to get before I got it and so the fact it turned out just how I imagined it was such a good feeling. I'm really pleased you all liked it :D.
