Darling Hill Road

Day 126/Year 2
So, after a delicious dinner at the Pub Outback in East Burke (where the frozen strawberry daiquari was consumed) we headed up the hill to Darling Hill Road. I love this road! There are sweeping views to the west of the Willoughby Gap, and sweeping views to the East of Burke Mountain.
Our first stop was to visit these cows. The late day light was beautiful, and I love the backdrop of Burke Mountain in the distance.
There's a barn across the street from this field, and I liked how the sun was low in the sky, positioned behind this cupola.
From here, we drove South down the road and stopped at this farm for our sunset shots. The farmer couldn't have been any nicer and allowed us access to his property where we set up our tripods and waited for the magic to happen.

This farmer raises Belted Galloways. They are a black or brown beef breed of cattle originating from Scotland, and have a white "belt" around the midsection.
After the sunset, the sky turned a beautiful shade of pink and purple.

It was the perfect ending to a perfect day of photography.
