In Cow Town it's easy to miss the beauty of the world. Stopping to smell the roses is removed from the vocabulary of every day living.

In the Valley, it's different.

The smells.

The sights.

The pace has slowed.

I take time to notice the sheer beauty of life.

New born calves and lambs.

The song of birds I've never ever heard.

Sunrise. Sunset. They're never the same.

Like this shot taken outside of the local coffee in the morning stop for the good old boys, Chatty Kathy's. Killer sunrise.

Then on the way to the house this afternoon I was hoping to get this shot. It's an every day occurrence - deer grazing in this meadow . . . and yes, that's one deer that's squatted for the pause that refreshes. . .

How awesome does this get? Deer in a meadow and not roadkill alongside the highway? That's how awesome it gets.
Would I live here?

Does a deer shit in the meadow?

Well, here it is, a deer shitting in the meadow.
Today the highway dept was stopping cars to allow for a 2 mile stretch of shoulder repair. We stopped for 10 minutes. I shot from the truck over my left shoulder.

Mt. Shasta.

Smelling the flowers.

Counting my blessings.

Best hold 'em up traffic stop I ever did have.

It doesn't get any better than this.

That's pretty!
I love the open space, the farm land.

I live near such beauty. KY can be so pretty. Bluegrass, horses, rolling hills. No mountain like that tho!
