Early Morning Rain

Flying Hat Ranch, Texas, Early Morning Rain, March 7, 2010 (click to enlarge)

This photograph shows a late winter in Central West Texas.  This is a view from the back terrace of our ranch house, looking southward.  Six miles away, in the distance, is Hannibal, Texas.  The pasture and arena shows Bermuda and Buffalo grasses emerging.  The white pen is a round pen for training horses, a kind of school room.  Beyond the arena and round pen is the tree grove with an intermittent-flowing stream: Salt Creek.  The rain is a fine mist.  It continued misting all day long, into the evening.  The cloudy weather had all creatures off their schedules: horses did not play or prance today very much, birds were relatively quiet and I saw a skunk at 4:30 p.m. near the corral, ambling through the Dooley pasture.
