My Hillside

My Hillside

I call this “My Hillside” because when I think of something in between a meadow and a mountain, I think of hills.  

For me this is kind of my stage between resting in a beautiful flowered meadow and very tall mountain I have to climb. I feel as if I am in the in between status of resting and going for the big goal. I am not quite resting but am acclimating to increasing my energies and heading up the trek of another mountain. 

There is rich earth from the tones of brown hues and beautiful luscious green for grass and crops to grow. Even though the blue could be water, it is beginnings and growth of a developing mountain. 

This was once a drawing I drew with coloured pens and I expanded upon it in the computer. I have added a beautiful sunrise because it is the dawning of a new day or a new chapter in my book of life. After having met my goal of posting one image a day for every day of last year, I have taken a little break and am now ready to proceed with new ambitions.

What can I say? These are Hereford cattle. I like the way the cows are looking back at me. They seemed to be as intrigued with me as I am of them. I think the Hereford is a beautiful cattle. As they nibble the grasses and enjoy being on the open range, they seem to be enjoying themselves. I like the composition of three against the hilly background.

Hide And Seek

Yes, these pink flamingos are playing “hide and seek.” It is nice to see that animals and birds play games just like humans. Ok, I am kidding. It does look like one could be counting with the help of the duck and the others are hiding. Seriously though, they are amazing how they can crank their necks like that. Plus, did you know they process their foods in their mouths upside-down? Interesting! Love their rose colouring against the dark background.

Broken Down

Broken Down

I took this photo because I like the broken down shed in the back.  It may have been a barn but it is not traditional looking as the big, red old barns do.  The attention of the photo starts with the fence and then takes you to the old shed.  Even the wheat grabs your attention along with the fence.  There are so many wonderful old buildings that are still standing and it makes you question what life was like when the farm was a family home with the vibrant pursuit of being a farmer.

Frozen Wheat

Thank you for liking, sharing or commenting.

Thank you for liking, sharing or commenting.

This was during an end of winter/beginning of spring drive.  Beside this frozen shafts of wheat were spots of spring starting with green grass popping up.  I like the curvature of the wheat as it wisps and twirls with the wind’s direction.  I like the quiet beauty of the wheat that just won’t quit despite it being out of season.  I also like the way parts of the snow look blue in the shadows.
