Very nice light... I especially like the strands of grass in the foreground. The low angle of set-up really enhances the shot.

I am glad you wrote about the strands of grass. THAT is the one thing that caught my eye while I was taking the picture. The sun was sitting very fast and one minute later would have lost the grass. I almost missed the house driving down the highway. The house sits back only 100 feet from the highway but was partially hidden from view by high brush. It was very cold and had some fears of animals or wild dogs living in the house. I kept one eye on my settings and the other on what might come running out at me. Everything was unplanned and quick.
