Another rainy day - with some breaks :)


Well, another rainy day in Old Blighty. You'd figure wouldn't you, I'm on holiday LOL.

Anyway, rain doesn't bother me (boring grey skies bother me, fortunately plenty of interesting skies around today). I wandered out and about with my camera today (and my shiny new tripod , lovely bit of kit). I decided to just drive around and stop when something caught my eye. While I was driving I passed Bosworth Field (the site of a famous battle), so I stopped off and went for a wander.

Fantastic! The autumn colours are just coming through, the fresh rain made the fields and woodland smell great too. Got around a hundred or so shots in a couple of hours. Now I'll go through them and pick a few that are really worth keeping. It was really fantastic wandering around completely alone (apart from the occasional bird, squirel, sheep, or cow [is it just me or do cows have really beautiful eyes? ] ). Very peaceful, very relaxing. And those skies? Fabulous, lots or interesting skyscapes.

Well, I'm off to sort through these photos.

Yes....cows are a lovely addition to any bucolic meadow....Did you see that Channel 4 Prog called The Unteachables last week.....This English teacher (Phil Beadle...Teacher of the Year) had a group of juvenile delinquents recite Shakespeare over a fence.....to a herd of cows.....the cows bunched up to the kids and looked out of their baleful beautiful eyes.....and took it all in (!)....(well, they didn't but the kids were lulled by the cows phlegmatic calm.....to like themselves...)
This is what cows can do for us......i like them better than sheep...

janmecir, nope didn't see the C4 programme (I'm one of the strange people who doesn't watch TV ), but I can completley understand the kids reactions.

Not wanting to sound like a bovine perv. but cows are wondeful, trusting creatures. They invariably come up to you if you walk by their field, big soft eyes peering dolefully at you. Lovely, very relaxing.

(The downside to this of course is that those same doleful, trusting creatures often end up on your dinner plate. Almost makes me want to give up beef - almost. )

hbgirl if any are worthy I will see how they look when posted on the blog (depends, if they look crappy when reduced enough for the blog then no, but if they look okay then I'll share).
