The area outside of Ponyville during late evening as the last remnants of daylight are disappearing and making way for the night. I love drawing dusk/night scenes because they can be depicted as so serene and beautiful, which is what I intended to portray in this image.
EDIT: Made a number of changes to the image to make it look more realistic for a nightfall scene. Erased outlines, recolored various areas for more accurate lighting as well as changed the brightness and saturation levels.
