Stands Alone...

http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2009/Dec/22/IMG_0055.JPG Dec. 21, late, I grabbed two bottles of Pale Ale and a camera and ventured out to a nice spot. It's private, takes 4wd, high-clearance and involves 3 mean-ass locked/high strung gates. My goal was to capture the sunset of the winter solstice. It was chilly & the wind cut, but it wasn't all that bad. I scoped some nice bucks to kill the time (where were they two weeks ago?) and waited for the moment. Then, the time was at hand. Just as I snapped this image a bunch of screams (female!) rang out far, far in the distance to the north, followed by a series of muffled chants. Man, the Druids, Pagans, whatever you want to call them -they're out there! This is a good thing, methinks. I could see the glow of a fire to the north along with a wisp of smoke. I sorta wish I'd been invited. I think they was having themselves some fun, on the darkest day of the year. Nevermind. Anyway, I got this nice image and wanted to share it. Autumn's over and winter it is, like it or no. Happy holidays to you all. My first seed catalog arrived in the mail today...
