Goats

So the short story behind this picture.  No, I am not obsessed with goats nor even particularly like them, not that I have anything against them either.  Please no angry emails from goat-herders.  Anyway on with the story.  I am sitting outside in the garden of my friend’s house in Aveyron, a beautiful region in France, when I notice the amazing clouds beginning to fill the sky.  I LOVE great clouds.  As a landscape photographer great clouds can make or break a photograph.  Unfortunately I have no control over when or where these clouds can appear, and while that ability might be an incredibly lame superpower, it would be an amazing asset for a photographer.  So I go inside and grab the camera and start walking to find something to take a picture of that I can include those amazing clouds.

After walking for quite a while down narrow lanes between fields without success I came to an opening on the side of a ridge.  While standing there admiring the view of the valley and trying out different photo compositions in my head.  I turned and noticed this large herd of goats headed my way.  To be considerate I attempted to move out of the way.  To my amusement no matter where I moved they continued to follow me.  After trying to decide how to use these new found powers - for good or evil and coming to the conclusion that a herd of goats probably would be of minimal help in the quest for global domination.  I decided just take a few pictures of the goats with the amazing clouds.
