The lonely bull

Reminds me of a bull, snout to the ground, ready to charge.

But where's the snow?

Around these parts our parking lots should be full of snow by the first of February.  And once the snow is too much for the plow trucks, the front loaders are required to scoop it up, pile it high, and get frozen white stuff out of the way.

But this year the plow trucks have had an easy job of managing the limited snow. And the little bit of snow we have had melts away a few days anyway.

So this bull sits off on the corner of the parking lot, waiting to make the charge.

  1. I like the way you put the loader into the square, with intelligent use of the tree - and I'd guess that framing with a DSLR's native viewfinder format was not too easy.

    Also the color palette is very fine, subdued but not boring - is it (partly) the landscapist's teaching, that becomes visible here, too? I admit his images are in certain aspects really instructive, but his writing sometimes is too absolutistic/agressive for my taste.
