"Cows are amongst the gentlest of breathing creatures; none show more passionate tenderness to their young when deprived of them; and, in short, I am not ashamed to profess a deep love for these quiet creatures. " Thomas de Quincey
Having grown up on a cattle ranch in Oklahoma, I could not agree more with the quote above. Hence, I also couldn't resist shooting this peaceful scene and posting it for your enjoyment. This was photo is from one of our many stops on our drive from Texas to New Mexico and back, and this scene is somewhere near Childress, Texas I believe.
These guys and gals were not distrubed in the least by me & the camera. They were just lazing around in the intense heat of the afternoon. The 'lines' in the front of the photo are strands from the barbed wire fence that separated me from them.
Check this out in X3 and look to the far horizon,and you can see the giant windmills that dotted the landscape in this area.
I didn't have any "turkey" shots, since our family's Thanksgiving celebration will be on Sunday evening. And everyone said they'd be tired of turkey by then, so we are having ham & smoked brisket.
Thanks for all your comments, and I wish you & your family a wonderful Thanksgiving.
