Saturday, February 12

It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Oklahoma. My shooting buddy and I started out early and headed to McAlester, Oklahoma, to attend a cattle auction, where her husband planned to buy some cows and calves to start a small herd on their farm in Gerty, Oklahoma. Here's a glimpse into my day.

Old chicken coop or shack across the road from the farm.
I took the obligatory landscape shots of the shack
but liked the compositionof this one the best - 4:09 p.m.

Sweet little baby after it was reunited with its momma - 4:41 p.m.

That was my day. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. See you next month.
