Ohio Sunset

This is from the archives, ironically enough when I uploaded this yesterday I looked at the EXIF data to find I shot this exactly 2 years ago to the day, right after I just hiked back up there yesterday afternoon, shot February 18, 2011. The sunset was beautiful that evening.

A couple of days ago the Empress saw what she thought was a large dog running down the path in a field behind the house, as it got closer we realized it was a Coyote, a big one too. We have had them here before and I have even been awakened at night with packs howling out the back window, I took a hike up there last night hoping to get a glimpse of the critters but no luck. From what I read they can roam 19 kilometres from their den, so this guy could be anywhere, and it is mating time as well, so I could start hearing little coyote screams soon.

Coyotes roam most everywhere believe it or not, but it’s kinda cool looking out your back window and seeing them.

This was a 3 shot hand-held set of brackets f/4 at 11mm, ISO 100 processed in Photomatix, very little processing as the sky put on quite a colorful show that evening.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping!
