Just going through some old pictures and came across this.



It was taken through the car window, so please forgive the blurriness at the edges. We were driving down a country lane through the Tasmanian Wilds, this time last year and was met with this. It's not one of my best, but there's something about it that I like.

One moment your franticly driving with lots of things on your 'to do list' and then there are cows on the road. Suddenly everything slows down and you're there in that moment in stead of thinking of all sort of other things. I like that! That's why I would like this picture...

Jools, I like the B&W, looks like you stepped into the 1950s or 60s. I haven't ssen any milk cans like that for a while, except for the one's people use foe rustic decor. I love the cows, great shot.
Thanks. Yeah those milk cans are a thing of the past. Captured in a rural antique store.

Some nice stuff being posted here. These are some previously-posted shots (mostly to m-club) with the M50/1.7

Beautiful.

As somebody living in the countryside I'll contribute with some images. Good idea for a thread!

1. Detail of a mostly burned out 17'th century farm. This tells us the people living there had the right to hold swans.


2. Old barn in a cornfield


3. Bringing in the hay

These are some the scenes that I see every day when I commute into work.

Most of the time there are sheep on these there hills. But they all must've gone hiding..



Aha! There they are! wiley sheepies..



If you squint, those are black angus cows at the bottom there (least I assume they're angus..)





and another, sans angus.

Great shots, it's cool that you know the history of the signage too, the old brick ruins in the field is pretty cool.

Jools, really like the farmland shot, and the "good old boys" pic could be taken anywhere with a bunch of farmers, but there are imposters there, no hats!

lovely countryside shots, probably makes the drive to work a little easier. I like the last pic in that you have two styles of windmills! cool.

By the way, Rob1234 has posted a fantastic sheep photo over in Wildlife. It's inspiring, I may have to go find sheep, we have a lot more cattle and hogs around here.

thanks ramsbuckeye. looking at them on the work monitor i've just noticed dust specks. ack! story of my life!

and yes, the views always make the commute easier - especially when there's pretty light.

Thanks for the heads up on the wildlife thread. Haven't checked in there lately. Will go and check it out
