My Country

"...The love of field and coppice Of green and shaded lanes, Of ordered woods and gardens, is running in your veins. Strong love of grey-blue distance, Brown streams and soft, dim skies I know, but cannot share it, My love is otherwise. " ~exerpt from a poem by Dorothea Mackeller
Dorothea Mackeller is referring to her homeland of Austrailia, but as with any poem or song, we can somehow relate and find meaning that pertains to our own lives.
This is actually taken on my in-laws farm. I really like how the snow clouds are coming in and creating the grey blue sky, the colors on the ground not giving in to the harsh winter weather, and the seeming calmness and silence you can hear just by sitting and looking at the land.
