The strawberries in our garden have started producing again in the cooler fall weather. They taste pretty good, and they look like this, so I really don't mind their plans for world domination.

These cattle were more interested in me than I was in them. I could make the whole herd move by taking a couple of steps along the fence line (they were moving with me, not away from me) and kept me amused for at least 10 or 15 minutes.

Backlit black cattle are hard to photograph. Did I say that already? Well, it is worth saying again.

Backlit black cattle need a better photographer than me. That said...


And, because I'm learning to do this and trying it on every photo that stands still for a minute, here's a black and white version.

Backlit horse

This is something like the view that made me stop the car.

I've decided to take this blog in another direction. It's my blog and I can if I want to...

Green stripes

The other morning I went off looking at the gorgeous colours that show up in early morning light. This field had the most delicate green striping and I couldn't resist it.

A little further along I stopped to take a photo of horse with outlined in sunlight. He promptly came over for a visit and got much too close for the photo I was imagining. We had a conversation instead and I took a bunch of photos like this one.
