Life in the country!~~~Livet på landet!

Posted by
Sussi (Landskrona, Sweden) on 13 July 2009 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

After rain comes the sun ....
The weather was not the best this evening, the sky opened up and the proposed picnic was quickly set in, after driving a short while out on a minor road on the countryside, seemingly all of a sudden the sun again, I saw the rainbow, jumped from car and took me in a cow paddock in order to photograph the rainbow, but just as quickly as I entered the field, I got the fly out from the paddock again, when around 50 very curious cows had vision of me and came towards me now with a very firm and quick steps (fly better than a bad fence), I thought, and was quickly off the fence again, plans changed so it could simply be a family card with a much smaller part of the rainbow was with;))
Such is life in the country;))
Efter regn kommer sol....
Vädret var inte det bästa den här kvällen, himlen öppnade sig och den tilltänkta picknicken fick snabbt ställas in, efter att kört en kort stund ute på en mindre väg ute på landsbygden, sken plötsligt solen upp igen, jag fick syn på regnbågen, hoppade ur bilen och tog mig in en i ko-hage för att kunna fotografera regnbågen, men lika snabbt som jag kommit in i hagen fick jag fly ut ur från hagen igen då ca 50-tal väldigt nyfikna kor hade fått syn på mig och kom emot mig nu med väldigt bestämda och snabba steg (bättre fly än illa fäkta) tänkta jag, och var snabbt utanför staketet igen, planerna ändrades så det fick helt enkelt bli ett familjekort där en betydligt mindre del av regnbågen var med;))
Sånt är livet på landet;))
