Rolling Straight at Sunrise #2

The field below the barn gets a bit wet at the bottom, but I'm told it is a good haying field. That's the place to shoot the barns at sunrise, I think, but so far my trips there have been in mid afternoon, and the grass is beginning to get long and ticks are about. In the late afternoon the lower area belongs to the turkeys. I wish I could get close enough to photograph their dandy dance. Perhaps I need to get down there before they do and hide out in my turkey suit.

This photo is not what usually attracts me, but I was pleased at how it all came together.

Is that a cow or dog on the left, Ted? So idyllic. This kind of pic pleases me as well!

It is a deer that appeared just as I was setting up my tripod and took just seconds to cross the field and disappear on the other side. I had no chance to set exposure/aperture or even to focus, but I got lucky on the first shot.

If you click on the picture you can see it large.
