Black cow

Thankful that:

I got a new haircut
_______________________________

This black cow just appeared from nowhere: one minute I was all alone and when I turned there it was staring at me. There were a few tense minutes where I was praying that it wouldn't charge at me because if it did I wouldn't have any room to move in and would have ended jumping down a ravine just to escape it. Thankfully, it turned away without doing anything else.

I've only seen silos on the television so when I saw some from afar I was pretty excited.

Despite the fact that these pictures were taken in a moving vehicle I must say that they still turned out pretty well.
