Sunday afternoon a young couple take a pony and carriage ride passing a thatched cottage in a quiet rural backwater of the Gloucestershire countryside. Beside the aesthetic charm of this picture, the object and fascination was to convey to the viewer the atmosphere of light and shade, and the strong contrast between bright sunshine and dark shadows where the sun fails to reach, where one is almost blinded when looking into the shadows.
