visitors, burlap bags, pigs bottoms, lightening in the skies, where do I begin
Yesterday Camera house caught Daisy showing you how she backs slowly through the burlap bags dislodging flies. Very slowly.
Gently swaying through the lightest of brushes. Flies gone. Not perfect. But she is after all. A Cow.
We have a visitor come to stay. The Matriarch has gone to Georgia with Our John, so I have her dog.
He has been around long enough not to be afraid. But the piggies zeroed in on him as a possible dinner companion?
Poor Kupa. All his heavy brown tail feathers have gone now too. He is denuded.
Later no-one cares about visitors or dinner. Sleep is the order of the day.
Don’t my days just go on and on. Delicious.
After a very simple dinner of farm food we settled in for the evening.
Later in the night the storms came rolling in so the four dogs and I went out into the fields, walking the perimeter, trying to get shots of the lightening. It was dark, pitch black. All the images that follow are lit by lightening. The lightening here is more likely to light up the whole sky. No little forks of ice in the corner. It’s cousin the thunder goes on for hours. It goes without saying that all these shots are handheld.( My new tripod legs have arrived, I am waiting on the head).
Good morning. If you were to ask me for a favourite it would be the top one and the fourth one. I am completely in love with these shots. The night sky is an excellent challenge. Especially when there is no light but for the flash of a lightening sheet behind the clouds. Like when Mum used to snap out the white sheet so it floated flat and perfect down onto the bed.
I do hope you all have a lovely day. Ours will be a bit soggy after all the rain that followed the lightening. But rain is good.
I left all the lights on when I went walking in the night, so I could find me way back home.
