Afternoon Light at Hillside

Gate to the Past

On a cold December morning, a certain ennui can set in.  One sure way to cure it is to get out into the world and take some pictures.  But where to go?

Having depleted my supply of breakfast pastries, I decided to go to Hillside, where there are always opportunities for photographs, and usually a supply of sticky buns.  I came up empty on the latter, but was rewarded by the late afternoon light and the company of various beasts, including the usual chicken and sheep, a blue-eyed alpaca, a duck in fancy dress, and my all-time favorite resident, Lulu the one-eyed cat.  No need to feel sorry for Lulu – she is quite agile and loved by everyone she meets.

And the light was magical.

Corn Silk and Other Nice Things

Corn Silk

I spent a good part of the day at the Lands at Hillside Farm Education Center doing some  (Gasp!) product photography for their up-and-coming new web site, and just as I was driving down the access road, so were the cows coming in from the fields.  I had to let them pass, and as I was aware from having previously documented this rather tedious process of bringing in the cows, I knew I had a little wait.  Getting behind a bunch of cows is not unlike being at the tail end of the I-80 back-up from the Poconos to New Jersey on a Sunday evening in August.  Oh, bother!

But no!  What a lucky thing!  As I looked around, tapping my fingers impatiently on the steering wheel, I noticed a little bit of corn, some nice bright wild flowers, and some thistles in various states of decay.  Hmmmm….

Not at all a waste of time.
