I was in a B&W mood of processing this weekend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I took this photo while walking through a nature preserve in Belgium. They use sheep to graze the overgrown brush in the nature preserves. So nice to see and it gave me an old-time feeling of days gone by. So that is the reason I turned it to a B&W art piece.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These sheep are called Kempens Heide sheep, which translates to Kempen (area in Belgium) Heather sheep because they would graze down the tall Heather in the open areas which keep the Heather healthy and blooming.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I will be offering this print on my website. #heart_imprint #tv_lovelylanes_hugs #renegade_rural #everything_animals #all_beauty_addiction #trb_rural #rural_love #rurallife #picturetokeep_rural ##rsa_rural_ #rsa_ruralsunsets #raw_country #country_feature #backyard_visions #art_of_nature #splendid_ourskirts #pocket_farms #total_rural #farm_snaps #farm_life #dirt_roads #country_road #everything_homefront #country_stillife #rsa_rural #raw_countryside #inspirational_photography #inspirational__photos

I am sure there is a mystery lurking down this lane. I called to me as I wandered to see what waited at the end. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was taken in Vorselaar, Belgium on the 12th-Century castle grounds in our town. I wonder who from the past viewed this same scene by then?

Fog and Fall what could be better?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was a very colorful autumn day as I rode my bike down this dirt road looking for something calling me to stop, enjoy and record in my camera. Well, when I turned the corner Autumn and the morning fog did not disappoint. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can only hope this Autumn is as beautiful

Workhorses understand that when the teamster says whoa it is time to rest. Then they pick up and go at it hard again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some think this is cruel, but to them, it was what they were bred to do.  No different than a border collie wanting to herd, a running wanting to run, or a painter wanting to paint. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do what you were gifted to do.  I have to photograph the rural stuff.

I took this photograph while driving the backroads in Montana. Some reason they must have pulled the truck up to the house to move, but maybe it would not start. Stayed there for years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

An old fruit farm in Belgian. Is there anything better than a country home?

We stopped at a friends house to visit and they had the most beautiful backyard. I took this image of one of their displays. Some people are artist in landscaping their gardens.

I created this piece of photographic art this spring when I caught these little Chickadees fledging their nest. The parents of birds are so dedicated to making sure their young learn all the can as chicks to be able to handle the world they are entering. 
Do you feel humans need some help in this department?

Took this photo in our backyard in Belgium. My husband had this old push mower and took it out for a spin. It did a wonderful job. 
Who needs a gym if you have one of these?

Look through an old barn window and what will you find? Some animals? Antique tools maybe? A old broken down tractor? You will never know if you don’t take the time to look.
