Dusty Days by zambianlass

Dusty Days

The pick-up/bakkie/ute rolling down the dirt farm track is stirring up so much dust. My Dad is driving with Paolo beside him. Buttons is co-pilot in her favourite position, balancing on the top of the seat beside my Dad. In the back are the other doggies who love their ears to blow around in the breeze. Each day is getting hotter now. Summer is on the way.
This is such a lovely picture. I wish I was there!

I love the feeling of this capture. It reminds me trips to the farm when I was a child :)

Terrific rural scene, the dust and dry grass could be anywhere in outback Australia. Down to the 'ute' as a farm vehicle.
August 19th, 2013  
Love this! And I agree, it could be in outback Australia! I love how Buttons is co-pilot! Fav!

This is a great capture, the color, composition, and light. Thank you for sharing I love seeing other countries and far away lands. My daughter and I are going to travel to Africa next July to join a group that does an 11 day walk to bring about awareness. It's called "Steps Over Swaziland" when I get more info I will post a link.

Love the composition here. One of the things I enjoy about 365 is that it shows me other people's perspective on parts of the world that I have never been to and never will. Fav and follow.
