Today found us on horseback again, trying to beat the bad weather that is rumored to be on its way. Our mission was to gather the calves at the Mills Place and bring them home to our school section. As I’ve done before on working days, I decided to make today an OOPE day – for those who care what that is… go here… for those of you who know and love OOPE… read on! Today, unbelievably, I took 158 photos! (Thank goodness for digital!) Of those, the majority were like this…
WOW, huh? I took 50 photos of grass today! Too bad you can’t see the gorgeous day we had, the amazing scenery, the cute calves gallivanting across the fields.
Too bad you missed the flock of Canada geese, the mallards lifting off of the creek, the dogs hard at work. Luckily, I realized the problem eventually… I had my zoom on, not my wide angle… so, just in case you thought I cheated on these OOPE photos, I have 50 photos of grass in my trash I could share with you! I did actually kinda like this one, though.
You see, I have a thing for fence posts and weathered fences. Soon after the problem was corrected and I snapped this one. Antiquing was added after the fact!
Lucas decided to take a break… another reason why it is appropriate to call them English Shadows… the snowbank was too far away, my shadow was cooler than the sunlight!
We stopped and visited with the neighbors. Notice their dog… it is Lucas’ daughter named “Kay”.
We trailed a bit more…
And finally we were on our way down the highway to our place.
Johnny and Bob pass us on the way home. Four miles later here we are, getting closer to my house but still another mile to go to the school section.
My camera battery soon died after this… and the sun went behind a cloud and the temperature dropped 20 degrees, I swear! Next OOPE day, I promise I’ll double check the wide angle feature more often! Come back tomorrow for my OOPE Fave!Find me here!
