Horse Shadows

I've been thinking a lot about the change of seasons as Betsy mentioned. Even photos taken near noon time are full of shadows, and evening lasts about 10 minutes. AhD and I have to be careful not to be too far away from home when the sky turns dusky.On Sunday, we probably reached the big field at top of Sanitorium Hill before 2:00. There's not a cloud in the sky, highly unusual for November in Maine. I'm not complaining, mind you.This photo was taken maybe 45 minutes later. Look at the size of the shadows here! We had a blast trying to position ourselves just so to get the tall horse shadow effect.
Later this week, I hear it is finally going to get cold. AhD is ready; his coat is covered in fluffy warm curls. He even has a bit of a mustache. Me? I plan to add an extra pair of socks and fleece and find my winter gloves. That extra natural layer of insulation I'll probably have after Thanksgiving may even help when I hit the trails with my beloved Curly pony. Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow RACers!
