Nice work, Norm. I find that it's hard to get a good balance between showing detail and portraying the subtlety of fading light and sun, but this series achieves that, I think. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful images Norm. The last two are just exquisite.

Rob, you should be an expert on fading light in your neck of the woods!

Aside from the fact that my eyes aren't what they used to be, Rod, we do get rather extended twilights in Tasmania, compared with the rest of Oz, but nowhere near that in Norm's part of the world!

A now-departed German friend and colleague of mine used to refer to twilight here as the Magic Hour. Each successive iteration of digital sensor makes it easier to capture all the light levels required, but the photographer has to know what they're doing during capture and in post-processing, to bring out the Magic.

I agree. Also, I especially like the composition of the first one - it just has all the "right stuff."

Thanks for the comments.... in that first one I was feeling a little sorry for the Pony, he's there all by himself. There were two of them in other years.
