The Silver Stallions

Last week, I stayed in a charming village a couple of hours north of Stockholm.

I discovered a sculpture of silver stallions with half moons on their heads.

As the sun set in a purple haze,

Those half moons seemed to scoop up the real moon.

It was a lovely sight!

  16. Brilliant find and the way you got the moon positioned in there is great. They look like chess pieces and cut an impressive figure in the dusk.
