What a beautiful spot for photography.MersadMersad Donko Photography
So brown, not much goodness for the cattle.
Looks as dry as it does here TFG.
So much space there!
Despite the water it looks quite arid.
They're looking for the last water - it looks like an oasis. We have these cattle where I live too.
Boy, you have great eyes. I can make out the cattle, but I'm missing the egret.
Jack, the egret is on the far side of the pond about in the middle. Looks like a white stick.
Thats a very brown image - do you need rain?Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
This looks like a scene from a John Wayne movie.
It could have been, except the real cowboy who drove cattle from Texas to SD was a fellow named Ed Lemon. There is a town named after him. He broke a leg once on a cattle drive, strapped it onto his saddle for a month, and walked with a bowed leg for the rest of his life. Here that is called, "The cowboy way."
A number of you have noticed that the grass isn't very green. I took this photo last week, and fresh, green grass was just beginning to grow. Our winter was brutally cold, and spring is late arriving here. It has also been dry. We have received 2" of moisture since January 1, that is much below "normal." Drove to Sioux Falls yesterday, and the road ditches are now green.
Sometimes your photos give new meaning to the phrase, "wide-open spaces"! I have seen similar scenes, however, in West Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. :) Glad things are finally greening up for you.
I noticed the lack of green, I am glad to know that some of the precious color is appearing here and there...
