Holsteins

holstein dairy cows

Holsteins.

From my perspective, there is nothing particularly dynamic or unusual about this photo. As soon as I saw this scene, I knew I had to capture it. Driving back roads in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, the contrasting, vibrant colors jumped out at me.

As soon as I exited my vehicle, the cows stopped their grazing and stood posed for the photo op as if they had done this several times before. They might have. Because right after I snapped this photograph, most of the Holsteins charged the fence to scare off the paparazzi. I obliged them.

“Holsteins” is my Photo of the Week.

  1. My 2 1/2 year old grandson was here in the Valley over Easter. He loved seeing all the cows, and commented on just about every one he saw as we drove around with a line from a book, “How, now, brown cow.” Even the black ones. 🙂
