Skywatch Friday - Equidae Sunset

Sunset in Lesotho provided some interesting material for Skywatch, like this donkey teathered on the side of a hill. I am very grateful that we have entered the digital era, because this fellow was very intent on eating and only raised his head after I had shot many frames.


For more great sky pictures from around the world go to the Skywatch site.

Have a great new Year to shoot more of those interesting pictures.

Once you mentioned it was your second shot, I simply had to hunt around for your first post.

This is quite delightful. A wonderful capture for a very patient photographer.
