A bit of poetry for you.

"Can you not see that clouds whisper the soft-dying day and enfold grassy-plains in golden hue;yet not a single bleat shall stir from half-grown calves with downy coat. Nor night hawks in the darkening hour shall gather over endless herds.

Then fears that they may cease to be before my eyes in eternity.

before high-bluffs where lookout held, when endless waves would thunder through. Then think that I may never trace their shadowed forms in endless space; or shall I see them evermore, across the plain with boundless hooves."

 

NOT too sure if you guys will like this, - I am more comfortable with a LOT of color, but I felt I needed a change of pace in this set !

These critters were kicking up the dust, an ideal photographic opportunity ! I felt it needed mono to bring in some 'drama' !

Beautiful creatures, what a dreadful history they have, the mass slaughter to starve out the Native Americans, I see sadness in their eyes.
