Shadows and Critters

I trust everyone enjoyed Christmas Day with family, friends and loved ones. I hope it was filled with laughter, fun, indulgence, reflection and thought for those less fortunate. Mine was a very low key affair this year, but enjoyable none the less. I took these shots on the way home from Toodyay on Christmas Day.
 
Linking with Saturday's Critters

These large hay bales outside a farm gate were  formed to make a giant Xmas Teddy
 
 
 
Further along the road these cattle were seeking out some shade from the hot sun.
 
 
 
Lake Ninan in the distance, a large salt lake. Clear blue skies, and very dry countryside, this is Christmas time in my neck of the woods.

  3. Hi Linley, too late coming by to wish you a blessed Christmas so here's some heartfelt new year wishes for a happy, healthy and peaceful 2015, and may you continue with these wonderful rural images.
    (Been to Toodyay a few years ago and loved it there! at the time the whole countryside was green and lush)
