Superb!
Looks like a frame from a costume film.

Well, I like it, but I don't know what it's all about. I feel like I just walked into a theater during the third act... ;-)

It's a truly beautiful photo, but there must be a story here.

Thanks, Fio.
Jacob, this was a fundraiser for the Sandglass Theater. There were numerous puppet performances throughout Gordon Hayward's exquisite gardens though no discernible puppets in this particular piece.

Jacob said...

Thanks, Brattcat. And now I know! Ha!

You don't have to answer this but I wondered if there were a lot of people around watching this particular scene?

Have a wonderful day.

"a lot" is relative, Jacob. I'd say there were about two hundred people at the fundraising event but the gardens were vast and I was in front for this particular show so I have no idea how many people were crowded behind me.

I think they are making a MOVIE !!
Lucky for you that you was there to make a photo :)))

This photo really compels enlargement. Great period pieces, and the horse looks like it is the size and build of a clydesdale.

oh my dear Brattcat, I would love to be there in such a beautiful event!
I love these arts.
I think this play was very romantic!

Yes, this does compel enlargement. I love this! It looks like a scene out of Castle Corona: the maiden, the prince on horseback, the meadow.

Sundays are very elegant in your neck of the woods!!!!

A movie or a painting come to mind. The scene is beautiful in itself but you have captured it in the perfect moment!

Quite beautiful, BC. The space between each of the gourpings in the image make it more idyllic to me.

Not sure that horse would do a lot of dancing: short legs and low-slung belly.

I like the horse, especially the horse, and then the people in their costumes and finally the setting. A nice post.

Thanks for helping me to make history.

I agree with JM it looks like an idyllic painting. Looks like a great event to spend money and time on.
