a moment







focus...

cool breeze... light scent of cow poop...farm houses... blue sky... foals.... chattering sheep..... distant cars.... hoping that these farmers don´t shoot trespassers.... wet knees.... weight of the camera in my hands.... holding my breath....

shoot....

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

¡Dos besos muy gordos!

your spring!!!
your moment!!!

today i took a chair out for the first time this spring. it stands there in the snow. - i had shoveled snow from my flowerbed- so now i have kind of mont blanc next to it- not funny. i dare not to think, when it transforms into water...

Cathy said...

I love the shot of the clothes line. That really says europe, country side and spring to me :) Hope the cow poop smell is not too strong!

Victoria @ Hibiscus Bloem said...

Lovely natural photos of the horse and sheep! Your fresh spring walk sounds good (thankfully without the farmer spying you!) I'm with family in the UK and eating way too much and lazing around too! A good walk would do me good!

elisvermeulen said...

okay honey, now go back, take some scissors with you and shave those sheep, next, put all the wool in your suitcase and come over!!

laméditerraine said...

Maybe the weather is not very 'springful' there but your pictures look amazing as if it was perfect.
You always know how to enjoy the moment and that's something I love, you transmit a lot of optimism to me when I read your blog.
Big besos for you dear Jane!
