On The Run

On The Run

This is just my luck....every time I try and shoot wildlife they turn and run!!!
I do have some images but they are few and far between.
The light skiff of snow over the rolling hills and the pink/blue sunrise backdrop works well in this image.

Nikon D200

Oh my God. How wonderful! zm "Silently and very fast..."

The piers are pummelled by the waves;
In a lonely field the rain
Lashes and abandoned train;
Outlaws fill the mountain caves.

Fantastic grow the evening gowns;
Agenst of the Fisc pursue
Absconding tax-defaulters through
The sewers of provincial towns.

Private rites of magic send
The temple prostitutes to sleep;
All the literati keep
An imaginary friend.

Cerebrotonic Cato may
Extol the Ancient Disciplines,
But the muscle-bound Marines
Mutiny for food and pay.

Caesar's double-bed is warm
As an unimportatnt clerk
Writes I DO NOT LIKE MY WORK
On a pink official form.

Unendowed with wealth or pity
Little birds with scalet legs,
Sitting on their speckled eggs,
Eye each flu-infected city.

Altogether elsewhere, vast
Herds of reindeer move across
Miles and miles of golden moss,
Silently and very fast.

I'm trying to think of something funny to say but I've got nothing. I'm close.....but nothing. Dang it. Great light though.

Maybe they've heard what you do with your Painting With Light and want no part of that :-)

I love John's comment...

Nice shot - but(t) :)

I should have been on the other side scaring them towards you Mike.

Coming or going away, this is a good shot. That sky does look nice!

You're shooting them with the wrong piece of equipment. ;)
