...Gather thy seed into thy barn..Job 39:12

Many times my husband and I drive past this farm on the way to buy groceries in a neighboring town. I aimed and shot this scene quickly from the passenger side through the car window... (not always the best plan for getting good compositions) when the car is moving.. Believe me I have deleted many of my duds that did not focus right, which has happened when I have tried to shoot scenes like this before, but this time I kept the picture...

The cows troop
Along with a group;
They quietly stood
And did not scatter,
In front of their barn...
Maybe they understood
That together they matter;
If they indeed gather
As wool to the yarn...
Poetry by me AJP

    So glad you kept this one. Gives us folks who don't live in a dairy-oriented region an idea of what your farmlands looks like.

    Great shot, Andrea! I often have to snap a photo while Dave is driving along, and like you I've tossed many. This is a very interesting scene from a dairy farm. Nice job under difficult circumstances! :)

    You sure managed to frame this one beautifully. Love the lines and geometry in this shot, plus the pic of the cow on the one building and the splash of red on the right.
