Sunbathing Cows

Bright sunshine is a precious commodity in the Pacific Northwest in winter. Still, we can usually count on a high pressure system to bring us some clear days in February. Even the cows appreciate the respite from the seemingly neverending dark and damp. They all congregate at the end of their barns to stick their noses out into the sunshine. I can relate, LOL!



Just for fun I'm including this photoshop rendering of the above photograph into a pencil sketch. Just about the time I think I know what I'm doing, I realize that there are dozens of buttons in that program that I haven't even pressed yet. Thank goodness for good, clear tutorials! (The tute for this project can be found in the current issue of "Digital Scrapbooking.")

Almost like a cat sleeping in the sun, almost expect the cows to fall asleep with their head on the fence

The cows look very happy and I don't blame them, we have been getting sunny warmer days too, until winter comes back that is.
