The golden hour for the WordPress weekly photo challenge

July 12, 2013

I was walking down to the village on this hot day and on the way down I passed our local herd of cows who were feeling the heat in their soft velvet coats.

There is a very little stream which runs thru Brook Farm and the farmer has made a lovely smooshy, splooshy, puddle of a pool.

On my way back the whole little herd was in the pool waggling their tails around, drinking the water, enjoying themselves to the max.

That was my golden hour. πŸ™‚

    I would love a golden still of this late in the day with just one bull or cow in the water at Western dusk. I was driving home from Pittsburgh on the turnpike a month ago and saw the photo just waiting for me but to stop QUICKLY at 80 mph would have ben very negligent but I still have it in my mind. Got any similar with low gold light V?

      Oh, isn’t that the way it always is Kathryn? I’ve got a snapshot in my mind of two eagles tearing up a salmon on the snowy bank of a river. And me without my camera! Unfortunately I have to wait till Sept to check out if I have any shot like that you might like because my files are in Vancouver, but I’ll see what I can do in the meantime. πŸ™‚

    I’m surprised they weren’t submerged fully.

      Hi Jean, I suppose it’s pretty shallow, but if it were me, I’d be rolling around in that lovely, smooshy mud for all it’s worth. πŸ™‚

    Beautiful velvet coats. That scene reminds me of growing up. Keep taking those walks. πŸ™‚

      Did you grow up with velvety cows Sabra? You lucky girl. They have the most beautiful eyes, don’t they?
