My drive to work is relatively short. I do not have to deal with traffic jams or catch public transit. I get to travel on back roads in total silence if I choose.
Today was overcast and a little cooler. It seemed a bit more like Autumn. I decided to pull over in a few spots to take pictures of the beautifully colour coordinated animals I see most mornings.
There are many more sheep than this, but these were closest to the road.
The same farmer keeps these cattle. They match the sheep very well. Even his sheep dog is this colour.
A little farther down the road I see this beauty.
These are his friends. They were a little farther away, so I played around with zooming in. I love when they are all out in the field together.
The trees have only just begun to change colour, little bits here and there. I am so glad that I get to drive through the countryside every day. I don't know how people commute to the city, spend hours on a highway, drive along congested roads. Some mornings I might meet four or five other vehicles at the most. I am much more contented when I am surrounded by wildflowers, birdsong, and a big dose of "green".
