"I actually drove past this same scene the week before, but by the time I turned around, the clouds blocked the sun & the cows had gone. Bugger! Fast forward one week & I was back north chasing pohutukawa blooms...but I was on this stretch of road a little earlier. As I got closer, I wondered "what if" the cows might be coming out again....& guess what, they were just leaving the milking shed! So I really lucked out this time, with beautiful light & mist on the hills, you can even see the cows' breath lit by the sun!"
