    Evennings and early mornings are incredibly beautiful, infused with a warm light that flatters everything. This is a typical evenning scene of cows being brought in for the evenning to the tukel, or houses that they share with their human masters. A feature of the area is the dust and everything that moves leaves a tell tale trail behind it often looking like smoke. The picture captures the dramatic scenes of dust trails and evenning light.
